From the dust jacket: "There is tenderness and humor in the way Mr. Lawson has portrayed the little people who burrow and scamper about his hill. Both children and their parents will find sheer delight in reading the story, and there is increasing delight as page after page reveals a perfect combination of Mr. Lawson's text and the most beautiful drawings."
