Mouse and Mole are the best of friends. They have fun together, and share everything. They trust each other completely, even with their deepest secrets. Then, one day, whilst lying side by side on a hilltop, they see a falling star. "It's my star! I saw it first," says Mole. "No, I saw it first!" shouts Mouse. Their quarrel tears them apart, but as the days roll by they begin to miss each other.
