Mayor Molly McMole has a big problem; her underground town in Chatsworth with onion-domed castles has just been covered up with a cement parking lot. What makes her children's picture books so special are the beautiful illustrations and Strieby's ability to weave a magical tale with an uplifting message.

Here comes another children’s picture book by Lorraine Strieby about Mayor Molly McMole and her little mole friends, including Cat Sophia and Spider Leggs. This magical adventure begins because the mole tunnels filled with onion domed castles and fancy cafes in a town called Chatsworth have been covered over by a cement parking lot. Oh, dear! What to do? Can Mayor Molly save her little friends once again?

Quickly she comes up with a whopping adventure. The book will be pre-sold in August 2015 on Amazon/Kindle. This book explains where shrews live and how Molly met Vinnie the Shrew.

The mysterious journey begins in a dark automobile trunk, and then Molly and her friends hop in a Conex Freight Box in the back of a fancy Peterbilt truck. Portholes are quickly chewed by the moles so they can see the sites along the Interstate, but where they are going is a long way from Chatsworth, luckily, Molly saves her friends again. They even have time to stop off in Santa Barbara and learn to surf.

The first book of the series is "Cat Sophia and Mayor Molly McMole" available on Kindle/Amazon.
