I don't know what to say about this. Odd, obscure, weird, disturbing ... very disturbing. The book is a palm-sized square, however the original art was done in one-inch squares and is very simplistic yet charged with emotion. The mole characters (naked mole rats the back cover tells me) are fighting over a ball of crap; somehow this is absorbing. One of them gets upset and his nose swells up and again somehow I feel sorry for him. Next they go off and investigate another object which we only get small glimpses of certain portions of it since it is so big. It is with frightening dismay when the simple words and recognition of an eye come together and we are sickened to realize it is a human corpse. The story continues; there is life and death, sadness and joy, curiosity and acceptance. Ultimately bizarre and yet somehow sentimental. The book is not for children, there is swearing and as I've said it is disturbing, but absorbingly so :-) ( )
