Rock ‘n’ Roll Mole by Carolyn Crimi & illustrated by Lynn Munsinger
Mole has a rock ‘n’ roll soul. He wears a leather jacket (even in summer) and shades (even at night), and he can strut just like his idol, Mick Badger. But then Mole’s friend Pig plans a talent show and, to everyone’s shock, Mole refuses to play. He’s a rock star, see-just as long as no one’s watching. The night of the big show, Pig is ready for his sizzling dance number, but wait-his iPod’s broken! Can Mole step up and save his friend’s rep, or will the bright lights and big crowds make him shake in his shades?
