Description

Deep under the ground lived a little mole named Molito. His fur was brown, the colour of burnt toast. His eyes were as yellow as the sun. Molito is a story about friendship. One day in the underground park, Molito meets an ant named Carlota who tells him about the mysterious place she lives in, called the upperworld. Molito sets out on his journey to discover what that world is. Molito is written by Rosemary Sullivan and Juan Opitz, and illustrated by Rosemary's sister Colleen Sullivan. The Chilean Canadian musician Nano Valverde has composed music to accompany the story narrated by Rosemary Sullivan. A CD of music and story will be included in the sleeve of the book. Black Moss Press is delighted to announce the publication of Molito in November 2011. Music composed and performed by Nano Valverde. Zampo?a and kena played by Claudio Saldivia. Narration by Rosemary Sullivan Produced, recorded and mastered by Juan Opitz, The HeadRoom Productions, Canada
