One day old Mr. Franklin asks Bet to go out to the field and read aloud from a book about earthworms. Why? Who is listening? Soon, Bet becomes the most trusted friend of her listener, who turns out to be a bewitched mole.

At first she and the mole simply sit together in their field, reading, talking, sharing hopes and fears. But soon Bet is helping the Little Gentleman unravel his long and legendary past, a past that includes the death of a king and a pouch of magic herbs. Bet begins to believe the mole's powers are stronger than he knows. She thinks he can even shift her size and take her exploring in his tunnels if he tries. Nothing is impossible. When the mole finally reveals his deepest wish, Bet knows she can help him.

But will it change everything?

    " A lovely book with a surprising inspiration from British history. I enjoyed it a lot. "

    " With an old-fashioned flavor, and shades of Kate DiCamillo, this is a rich fable for all ages. I especially liked the bit where Bet realizes just how 'other' moles are to humans, and vice versa. "

    " A very interesting book about a talking mole who became extra special when a spell was cast on him. I liked the characters and the relationships created by the author were very good. "

    " This is a very calm read, nothing too dangerous or scary. But that dosen't mean that it's not brilliant! "
