2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed by this storyline
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 June 2022
I am fond of some of the other books in the series but this one has been a let down. I am puzzled and a little concerned by the purpose of the storyline, or the moral of the story.

In a nutshell, mole loses his glasses, can’t find them, becomes worried, still can’t find them so then becomes sad, is offered comfort by sweets, then finds his glasses and everything is fine again.

So what has my child learned from this story? That losing things automatically causes worry and sadness, that sadness should be responded to by comfort-eating junk (that there is hope in junk food), and that my problem can only be solved by locating what was lost. What if my glasses were never found - am I supposed to feel worried and sad and comfort eat for all time? Of course losing glasses may very well be a worrying and sad time, but must this be presented as the default response for a child learning about this scenario? Glasses are not irreplaceable so why such a stressful response? When Fox loses his socks in the “Fox’s Socks” book in the series, he isn’t portrayed with the same worry or sadness.

Stories that we read our children leave impressions on them, and teach them things about the world we live in, even when we don’t realise it or dismiss them as “simply stories”. This ones emphasis on worry, sadness, comfort eating and all of that being solved by finding the lost glasses (that in the real world may never be found) just sends a very superficial message, and in fact destructive way, of coping with life’s challenges and losses. I mean thank goodness Mole finds his glasses!
