Four episodes in which Mole makes four wishes, Troll visits Mole, Troll loses a tooth, and night noises scare the pair of friends. The loving, though sometimes challenging friendship between Mole and Troll, is the central theme around which all four short stories in “Night Noises,” revolves.With that constant and reassuring theme in place, each story explores child-sized conflicts with loneliness, selfishness, boo-boos and the fear of the dark (night noises).
Mole finds and lovingly cares for a wounded baby bird. As the bird recovers, Mole’s mother explains that soon the bird will fly. But Mole wants to keep the bird, so he builds it a cage. Then, one beautifully clear day, Grandad takes Mole for a walk to the top of a high hill where Mole can feel the wind whipping around him. “I’m flying!” he says. When Mole returns home, he looks at the caged baby bird, finally understands that birds are meant to fly, and sets his baby bird free.
