    Morris Mole and his brothers live deep underground. His siblings spend all their time digging, eating, and sleeping, while little Morris expresses his individuality by dressing dapperly, reading books, and enjoying a good meal. When the brothers run out of food, everyone decides to dig deeper, except Morris, who tunnels up instead. There he finds flowers, birds, friendly folk, and delicious foods. Just as he is about to return home with his haul, Morris meets a hungry fox, who is in turn set upon by an angry wolf. Morris hides the fox, mending their relationship in the process, and then the mole surprises his brothers with a delicious feast. Yaccarino's mixed-media illustrations are richly hued; the navy moles wear bright orange and green work clothes, and the aboveground fauna is vividly depicted. The effective use of backgrounds (black for underground; white for aboveground) also helps to signal key setting details for young listeners. A gentle reminder that thinking differently can have its rewards. Copyright 2017 Booklist Reviews.
