Goodreads | Colin Powell (Leigh-on-Sea, The United Kingdom)'s review of Duncton Wood
Smashing little story that i read when it first came out. There have been follow up stories since though I have not read these. Duncton Wood is the first of the mole society stories. It is on a par with Watership Down where our mole friends are given the way of human communication. It is a wonderful world to enter into with superb characters. There is a pretend civilization and we are taken on a journey of biblical wonder in this mole world. Very enjoyable and a peach of a read.
A summer afternoon in the garden or on holiday; go for this story. I would highly recommend it.
