The Moles of
Winter had finally set in for
the small family of moles living on the shores of White Lake. Summer
seemed to fly by and before the family knew it, the cold winds of October had
begun to blow. The family had spent most of the summer preparing for the
winter season by collecting earthworms to be consumed during the winter months.
The earth worms were being stored in underground “larders” or storage areas in
Mickey, the oldest boy of the
family, had taken great pride in his ability to catch and store so many
earthworms in the larders. After his birth in the spring of 2009, Mickey
grew fast and was forever roaming the grassy area of the savannah. His
parents, Grover and Lilly were constantly reminding Mickey to stay near and not
to wonder too far from the safe long grass near the lake.
Meanwhile, his sister Alli was
forever exploring the lakeshore for new things. Alli enjoyed the many
flowers that seemed to be everywhere. She had found Black-Eyed-Susans,
Marigolds, Bloodroots, Jack-in-the-Pulpits, Violets, Orchids, and Shooting
Stars. Alli had very little time for collecting earthworms. She felt that
was a job better left for the men of the family. Alli was more content
simply relaxing in the beauty of the flowers.
However, there were many
dangers that lurked in the small savannah of the lake. For in that same
area lived eagles, red-tailed hawks, owls, red fox, and wild cats. Alli
needed to learn to take care of herself because there would come a day when her
parents would no longer be there for her.
