Molly the Lonely
No one can be friend with everyone, but you will find your special one.
Molly feels lonely. She lives in a small special world where only kids live in stones. She
wants a friend badly. So she visits other kids.
Some talk, all about themselves, which is
kind of annoying. Some cry, until their stones are full of tear, which makes Molly sad.
Some even trick all her candies and turn away.
The sky goes dark, and suddenly there is
this beam of light. Will it lead Molly to a friend?
How will the world change when she
has a friend?
