Summary
Funny and fact-filled, MOLES is another installment in the SUPERPOWER FIELD GUIDES series by author Rachel Poliquin, featuring full-color illustrations by Nicholas John Frith that will engage readers with witty narration and fun visual elements, inspiring readers to dig deep and see the world, both above and below ground, with new eyes.



Meet Rosalie, a common mole. The first thing you need to know about Rosalie is that she is shaped like a potato. Not a new potato, all cute and round, but a plain old lumpy potato. She may be small. She may be spongy. But never underestimate a mole.



I know what you're thinking: moles are just squinty-eyed beasts that wreck your lawn.



You're right! Those squinty eyes and mounds of dirt are proof that moles have superpowers. There is absolutely nothing common about the common mole.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Having sunk her teeth into Beavers (2018) in the first entry in the Superpower Field Guide series, Poliquin now digs into moles those tunneling torpedoes whose subterranean superpowers include Indefatigable Paws of Power, Arms of Hercules, a fantastically sensitive Early Whisker Warning System, the ability to turn around in tight places due to Super-Squidgibility, and the admittedly-unproven-but-too-good-to-leave-out Saliva of Death. Along with unpacking each power in succession, the author leads a house tour beneath the turf to point out typical latrines, worm pantries (where live provisions are stashed, their heads bitten off so they can't escape), and other expertly excavated chambers and tunnels. She surveys New and Old World mole species and explains how the blood of the blazing bitsy backhoes is uniquely adapted for low-oxygen environments. Pop quizzes mix recaps with ringers (True or false: Moles are strong enough to juggle bulls ), and the back matter features a small but choice heap of print and web resources . . . including, of course, The Wind in the Willows. On almost every page, Frith's freestyle animal portraits, cutaway views, and glimpses of the casually dressed author scouting out facts echo the narrative's exuberant tone as well as significant portions of its content. Readers will never again regard these bionic burrowers as pests or, at least, not as ordinary ones.--John Peters Copyright 2019 Booklist"
