Now find my friend Mr Mole, facing me. He is wearing a smart blue velvet suit. Just beyond my oar you can feel his upward pointing foot, which he waggles from sheer happiness; then his rounded knee and leg, then his rounded tummy with his paw lying on it. Move right and feel his arm in his sleeve, this is resting on the elegant arm of the seat in my boat. Can you find its curve?
Mole's back is supported by the seat and he is leaning back blissfully into the soft red cushions.
