Irritated Earthworm


Mole's habit of building home extensions at two in the morning did not make him very popular with his neighbors.

OMG this is so adorable. And does Mole know that he is getting not only good exercise, but releasing all the built up tension from living in a subterranean world.

(We have to fish our mole out of the pool from time to time.)

This is the seriously cutest illustration! I love it. Mr. Mole is just a busy body and the worm is not happy with the intrusion.

Brilliant and wonderfully executed!
