Synopsis

My Cousin Momo by Zachariah OHora

Forrest and his sister are so excited for their cousin Momo to visit. But even though Momo is a flying squirrel, he won't fly for Forrest's friends. Plus his games are weird, and he can't even play hide-and-seek right! Momo is NOT as cool as Forrest thought he would be. But when Forrest decides to give Momo's strange ways a chance, he and his sister realize that doing things differently can be fun...almost as much fun as making a new friend.
