Pollywogs, box turtles and cardinals are all part of the natural world of the South Carolina low country.
This story about Molly and her companions is a tale of friendship and about accepting yourself as you are and others as they are.
Chet and Tina are cardinals whose striking features, bright colors and ability to fly capture the attention of a dreamy pollywog. Holly the turtle may walk slowly, but she makes up for it with her kind-heartedness. Plus, it is Holly’s shell that sparks the imagination and excitement of our protagonist, Molly the pollywog.
