A Friend for Mole

by Nancy Armo

Sometimes things aren’t so scary when you have a friend to keep you company.

An accidental encounter throws Mole and Wolf together. One is afraid of the light, the other is afraid of the dark. Together they learn that friends are all they need to conquer their fears.

Nancy Armo’s humorous story, with adorable illustrations, explores fear and friendship to show how opposites can complement, strengthen, and support each other.
