Item description for How Big Is the World? by Britta Teckentrup...
Overview Little Mole asks each animal he meets how big the world is, and they all give progressively larger answers, ranging from the size of a spider's web to an endless ocean.
Little Mole has an enormous question: How big is the world? He knows there's only one way to find out: leave the molehill and see for himself. And so Little Mole circles the globe, from the frozen north to the vast desert, the tall cities to the huge mountains, the great jungles to the thick forests. Everywhere he goes he meets fascinating animals and discovers new lands. But in the end, as with all little ones, he realizes that no matter how big the world is, there's no place like home. Britta Teckentrup's luminous art captures the beauty of diverse landscapes, the charm of a menagerie of beasts, and the appeal of one very special, childlike mole.

Beautiful evocation of the wonderous world around us Nov 26, 2007
A young mole burrows up from the ground and wonders how big the world actually is... With a series of animal guides, Little Mole explores ever-expanding new horizons, and comes home wiser than before. Fans of Eric Carle and Leo Lionni's work will recognize their influence here, and will doubtless love this book as well. Highly recommended! (ReadThatAgain book reviews)
