Publisher's Summary

One hundred years ago a little boy was pulled out of school to help his father fish for lobsters off the coast of Louisbourg, Nova Scotia. All goes well, until he falls overboard and experiences a new friendship that leaves his small community speechless. 

The Mola Mola has the unique perspective of being thoroughly tested on students from grade primary (kindergarten) to grade six. Countless elementary-age children have grown to love this beautifully written story and enthusiastically request its telling time and time again, whenever the author visits their classroom. With The Mola Mola, the proof is in the classroom.

THE MOLA MOLA is a delight!

THE MOLA MOLA is a wonderful story! I enjoyed listening to this short audio recording (twice!). The listener is immediately drawn into the story by the narrator's warm and welcoming vocal tones. Listening to this book on Audible brings to vivid memory childhood bedtime stories which left you wanting to hear more. After listening to the story, I felt prompted to go online to research additional facts and photos related to Mola Mola and other types of ocean sunfish, and then I listened to the story a second time. I believe THE MOLA MOLA would be an excellent teaching tool, as an introduction for an elementary school (or home-school) oceanography or ichthyology lesson. Thank you for this delightful book!

A Sweet Tale of Adventure!

A fun story for both children and adults, filled with action! I liked this book very much. The real treasure however, is in the narration. He really brought this world to life! With a voice that is warm and smooth, like velvet, you are immediately swept up and taken on the ride. His characters are spot on and will make you smile. I am actually going to look for other works by Mr. Obien. I do reccomend this book.
