by Bentley, JonathanKasch, Jo

Mo lives alone and he likes it that way... or does he? Mo is comfortable behind his wall as a recluse until one day Crow comes along and slowly chips away at Mo's barriers.

Mo lived alone and he liked it that way.
He had a house to protect him.
And a wall.
It kept everything out he wanted kept out.

A beautiful picture book for sophisticated readers, Mo and Crow demonstrates the rewards of tackling shyness, the power and importance of friendship, and how small acts of kindness can change someone's life for the better.

Jo Kasch is an award-winning Melbourne-based television writer and script editor with a particular love of television aimed at children and teens. Mo and Crow is her debut picture book.
