Duffie has crafted this small book so carefully that it is like a treasure box which never empties. The Mole and the Owl is the kind of book that will speak to anyone with a heart. Children will cheer for the mole with unabashed joy, and adults who have faced their own struggles for true love will see a bit of their lives reflected in the mole's quest. Much like William Goldman's The Princess Bride, The Mole and the Owl has everything a good book should have to appeal to the imaginative reader: adventure, fights, frolic, and most importantly, love.

Here are all 20 Charles Dickens books: novels and novellas that defined Victorian literature. Both women then abandon Dombey, who must learn the hard way to take responsibility for his actions and the harm he has caused. Hopefully, you’ll have the best (and not the worst!) of times reading through them. Dombey and Son certainly challenges the reader to sympathize with Dombey, an extremely unlikable character for most of the book; but the emotional and ideological journey he undertakes is reason enough to stick with it. 13.

In a highly conforming and rule-blound world that we live in, people become more and more indifferent. People are caught up with their everyday routines, keeping busy schedules, having little time to what some would say "live". This book is not only about the power of faithful love, but it taught me just how important it is to make decisions that will make us happy and will show what we truly believe in. For those people who believe they have wasted too much of their lives following rules and being afraid of becoming different, for those people who believe that they are capable of a greater love than they can imagine, for those people who believe that they should start "living their lives", then here is a book that sings your song.

A delightful book that ponders the eternal question of who we are and who we can become. Can a mole fly? Like the oracles of old, the answers can be cryptic, ending up not quite what we suppose. This book was a gift from good friends. I bought a copy for my niece and her two young boys--it's never to late or too soon to contemplate some things.

Sometimes a writer touches on the marrow in the bone, the upturned lip of a smile and emotion that transcends each simple word. This book, these words -- give more than seems possible. Few writers have accomplished this is my opinion, but one surprisingly comes to mind -- Richard Bach, writer of Jonathan Livingston Seagull.

This story flies in similar ways but with its own lovely breeze in its wings. Fantastic!

Excellent work, of the caliber rarely seen. Inspiring and mind-bending. A metaphor for life and faith, yet accessible to all ages. Beautiful illustrations too. Let's see more by this bright young author!

Why does a reader develop a passion for a certain book? Is it because the author strikes a sympathetic cord in the reader's receptive heart? Is it because the author puts emotions into words and presents them as a gift to the reader? I believe the answer to both questions is "yes" when asked about Charles Duffie's little book. I consider myself fortunate for having discovered this story during its "life" as an online novel. I, as a reader, was given the rare opportunity of sharing in the author's dream and watching it come true. I was so pleased when I received an email concerning the publication of a story that means so much to me. "The Mole and the Owl" is a love story, a story of how love allows you to dream larger than your self, and the power of those dreams to transform your life. As George Bernard Shaw said, "The only service a friend can really render is to keep up your courage by holding up to you a mirror in which you can see a noble image of yourself." This little story relates the search for the one with the mirror, the one who reflects the best image of your self, the one who has taught you to dream. I consider it, along with "The Man Who Planted Trees" by Jean Giono, a treasure-book, a book to be enjoyed again and again, and shared with dear friends. The story behind this story is equally one of the transforming power of a dream, and its discovery and publication are in true dreamer's fashion. After years of submitting "The Mole and the Owl" to publishers through the mail, the story was placed on-line in 1995. Hampton Roads Publishing Company discovered the novel in the fall of 1997, and decided to publish the story complete with full color paintings by Charles Duffie. Congratulations Charles...dream all the time.

One of my great joys in life is reading short stories. I love science fiction and fantasy. My special joy, however, is the fairy tale. In "The Mole and the Owl" I have found the pure essence of fairy tales. The true and pure love of the mole and his selfless heroism, the sacrifice of the owl and the actions of the wolf are magical. This story tells about all things noble and makes me believe I can be just that noble. A great story is a great story but there is something that can be added to the telling. The lyrical use of prose in this story is almost unbelievable. It sings to me like a favorite song. Ray Bradbury is the only writer I have read with an idea of prose that even comes close to comparison. I am rarely moved the way I was moved by this story. I cried. I never cry when I read. It's just a story. But still I cried.

As with many things in life, when one can associate life events with a story, song, etc., it brings it that much closer to the heart. Each character and obstacle can represent any number of things that we struggle against in life, but the underlying emotion(s) are always the same. Especially with love. Love is the greatest struggle in life, and for the obvious reason of never-ending rewards. Stories like this always reassure us of things seemed lost and things seemed regained. While mine is not regained, my search is still strong, and now after reading this story, stronger still.
The touches of humor, such as the comments by the old tortoise, were gently done and very well integrated. The imagery was almost tangible. While it makes a great book for children to read and will help to stretch their imaginations, it would also be a great book for parents to read to their children, as the flow of the story lends itself well to the spoken word, and there is much material in it that would appeal to adults as well as children.
