This is a classic Peruvian folktale about a fox wanting to go to the moon. Fox convinces mole to go with him, but soon enough falls down from the rope they managed to build. The animals laugh at him, and from then on moles prefers his solitary tunnel. This is a great book to introduce folktale. It has vibrant authentic pictures and is a great story to tell the classroom. This book can be for 1st grade to 5th grade. ( )

This folktale, told in both English and Spanish, was a good book. My first observation was regarding the illustrations. They are very geometric, which is not typical of folktales. Though I though the pictures were cool and fun to look at, I don’t think they offered much insight about the story. It was a ‘pourquoi’ folktale, explaining why moles dig underground. However, the story is mainly about the fox’s adventure as he tries to get to the moon. The story is very short and flows quickly. My favorite part about it was the magical elements. The surrealistic aspects make the story bouncy and fun; the reader finds enjoyment in the imaginative details of the story about two friends. The Peruvian folktale is told in two languages, allowing more readers to interact with the text. The big idea is that when looking for adventure outside of typical bounds, one must not fear the unknown. ( )

The book is as fun to read in English as it is to read in Spanish! ( )

This book is about a fox that wants to go to the moon. The mole decides he will also go only because the fox told him that there were huge worms up there. The fox decides to make a rope to get to the moon. The fox then decides that him and the mole can climb the rope until they reached the moon. He would learn that he would need other help to reach the moon because the rope alone would not work. This book does a good job of showing that students sometimes have to work together to accomplish a given task.

Fox wants to go to the moon. Mole does not--at least not until he hears about the huge worms waiting up there for him to eat. So the two of them set off on their adventure, with a little help from a rope of grass and their friends the birds. The bilingual text and bold art showcase Lois Ehlert at her captivating best.
