A Fun, Entertaining Read Jan. 2 2012
By Mundie Moms & Mundie Kids Book Reviews - Published on
Format: Hardcover
What a fun, entertaining read. The Vole Brothers are off to find something to eat, but their misfortunes almost have them ending up as dinner. This is a simple, easy to read, well illustrated that book that we really enjoyed. Having little words on each page not only makes it an engaging story, but it's perfect for preschool age kids and beginning readers.

The Vole Brothers is a zany book my daughter and I enjoyed. I’ve not read the author’s other series The Mole Sisters but will look for them the next time we are at the library.

The book summary has way more text than the actual book. There are just a few words on each page making it a great read for preschool aged children. Expressive illustrations bring the story to life.

Rating: 4 Stars – Great Book

not what I expected May 4 2013
By M. Mitchell - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I was looking for a book about voles because my first grade students have been interested in the holes and tunnels voles are making on our school grounds. I bought this book since it wasn't available at our library. But I was disappointed. Mostly because the voles live in a rain gutter spout (not underground). I wanted the book to show the voles living in underground tunnels in meadows. (Voles are sometimes called "meadow mice".) The voles in this book are portrayed like rats, living in the city and eating garbage.

The plot is simple and the text reads like a comic book. (All the text is written in word bubbles.) When the voles get hungry, they tunnel underground to steal a slice of pizza from a cat. The pizza is then stolen from the voles by a bird and ants. The cat catches up to them, but just when he is about to eat the voles...his dinner bell rings. So the cat tosses them aside. Lucky for the voles, they happen to land in a strawberry patch. The voles eat the strawberries for dinner and are satisfied.

After this, my class read "The Complete Adventures of the Mole Sisters" by the same author. This collection of 10 short stories also reads like a comic book, and the moles are shown living underground. My kids seemed to like theses characters and stories better. I would like to see more vole brother stories, where the voles behave more like real voles. The books did inspire my class to write their own comic strip stories about the voles living in our school yard. So for that I thank the author, and give it three stars.
