Moles: What Is Out There?

The story revolves around Plato, who lives with his parents deep underground, in a dark burrow full of mystery and surprises.

He is a restless, curious and thoughtful creature — fascinated by the light that penetrates the entrance to his home. Sometimes it is lit; sometimes it is dark. Why could that be? 

Plato desperately wants to see what is out there in the world above. One day he finally gets to see it all!
