The Adventures of Mairi Mole tells the story of a little mole who is all on her own. Her friend Anne (an inveterate gardener), allows her to play in the garden, but soon despairs of all the molehills that appear in her lawn as Mairi digs around.
After Anne’s cat Steven, (thinking Mairi is a RAT) nearly catches her, she runs away. Luckily she befriends Monty who takes her home to her family underground. Monty’s father teaches Mairi what to be careful of and how to survive. Numerous adventures bring Mairi and Monty closer together, until they decide to marry and start a family of their own.
