Book Review


Leo and Molly love their new neighborhood, and especially their neighbor, a panda named Stillwater. Stillwater gives their cat, Moss, a ride in his bike, dances ballet with Molly, tells stories to the children to teach them about hard work and patience, and demonstrates the importance of not being selfish, especially if there is something that he wants. Through the lessons that Stillwater teaches them in their daily activities, Leo and Molly learn about being good people and that making a difference to just one thing or one person is enough.
