Molly lives in a tree fort, a little lonely but happy. One day, Jet bird arrives . He builds his own fort all night and all day. Molly is suspicious that Jet bird can whistle louder and climb faster and may become a rival. After a while, she begins to enjoy his company and imagine their new friendship. Just when Molly is starting to enjoy Jet bird, he disappears . Molly and the reader cannot miss the big emotion that follows . Molly waits and makes many plans to be a more trusting, generous friend to him. Will Jet return? If he does , Molly's heart may just burst with joy and relief .

Molly, like many young children, is learning how to make friends and how to be a good friend, too. We don’t always understand why things go wrong in friendships, and often don’t get a second chance to help things go right. This is a story of learning that giving feels better than competing and sharing feels the best of all.
