A 5 minute conversation with the neighbors can feel like an hours long ride on the boring train for little Molly. There are laughs to be found at each turn of the page both in the art and writing of this effort by the comic duo Emma Hunsinger and Tillie Walden. Will Molly’s parents ever stop talking!?? Pick up this picture book and find out.
