Molly and Mae Little Hare Books


Friendship is like a train journey. 

There are happy moments, boring moments and exciting moments. 

There is anger and loneliness, and there is forgiveness, 
and the thread of friendship runs through everything, 
like rail tracks through the countryside. 

Brilliantly rendered by Danny Parker and Freya Blackwood, Molly and Mae is a portrait of the most delightful and emotionally rich train journey imaginable.
