Mole digs and digs, dreaming of finding something colourful, but is always disappointed. One day, he finds a radish poking through the top of his tunnel. They start chatting, and as Mole listens to the descriptions of life above ground, he imagines bright clothes, red roofs, vibrant green trees, pastel flowers and the blush of the sun as it sinks through the sky. The next morning, Mole is distraught to discover that the radish is gone, leaving a hole in its place. What will find if he crawls through it?
