Rose has knitted a lovely warm jumper for Mole, but where is it? Lift the flaps and help find Mole's birthday present. Little Poppets is a new series of board book first stories following the adventures of four firm friends: Mole, Rose, Pippin and Mouse. Children and adults alike will be delighted with the gently humorous stories and intricately conceived detail of the world in which they live.
