An animal story that touches on the importance of friendship.

An unlikely friendship forms between two very different animals in author James and Marie-Paule Mahoney’s new children’s book, “Molly and Babou” (published by AuthorHouse).

No one would have thought that Molly, a half-blind rescue puppy from Jamaica, and Babou, a lonely black bear, could be friends, but when Babou turns up at Molly’s house, the two bond over a close experience with death. They play and roam the forest together, but Molly keeps their relationship a secret from her stepsisters, Rags and Pupsie.

When Babou goes into hibernation and returns with a sick, orphaned bear cub, he seeks Molly’s help. Can she alone help her friend save the cub?

Filled with beautiful illustrations, “Molly and Babou” tells an animal story that touches on the true meaning of friendship. The authors hope to delight their young readers and inspire them to see nature and wildlife in a new light.
