Marty Mole was a very timid fellow who didn’t come into the garden very often because the sunlight hurt his eyes. Marty lived under ground in a little house deep below the garden lawn.
He was a busy little mole and sometimes a nuisance to the people who owned the big house and whose garden he lived in. He only usually came up into the open at night and then he would leave piles of earth on the lawn which would often upset the lady.
But Marty was also a lonely little chap and he wanted to find a friend who would come and live with him. So one day he decided to go searching for another mole.
The first place he explored was the garden but there was only him living there. Disappointed he went to bed that night feeling very unhappy. The next day he decided he would go through the hedge and look in the field next door.
