Molly, a half-blind rescue puppy from Jamaica befriends Babou, a lonely black bear in the new children’s story by authors James and Marie-Paule Mahoney, “Molly and Babou” (published by AuthorHouse).

No one would have thought that Molly and Babou could be friends. But when Babou turns up at Molly’s house, the two bond over their shared loneliness.

Praises for “Molly and Babou”:

“The animals' distinct, endearingly flawed personalities make them appear charmingly human for four-legged critters. The authors smoothly weave in facts about animals and touch on environmental themes in a subtle, child-friendly way, making the book informative without losing the joy of its fictional elements.” — Kirkus Reviews
