Mole burrowing out of the ground sees the moon for the very first time and thinks it is the most beautiful thing he has ever seen and wants to play with it. Mole sets out to pull the moon down but soon finds out that some things are not as easy as they seem, or as close as they look! A heart-warming tale of aspiration, friendship, adventure and a little bit of mischief accompanied by catchy songs, this is the perfect treat for everyone aged 3 and up.
