When Mole looks around his underground home, all he sees is the black-and-white world of his cold, dark hole. Mole digs and digs, dreaming of finding something colourful, but day after day, he is disappointed. One day, Mole finds a radish poking through the top of his tunnel like a chandelier.They start chatting, and as Mole listens to the descriptions of life above ground, he imagines bright clothes, red roofs, vibrant green trees, pastel flowers and the blush of the sun as it sinks through the sky. The next morning, Mole is distraught to discover that his chandelier is gone, leaving a hole in its place. He crawls out of the hole and into the world above - and into a place more colourful than he ever dreamed possible.Printed in vivid pantones and with an inventive die-cut hole in the cover, Mole in a Black and White Hole tells a charming tale about what awaits us when we seek out the light in the darkness.
