"In the dark forest, there lives a bear! The bear is incredibly huge and scary, so you must be careful!"
On a sleepless night, little kitten Mo follows a gleaming light outside the window and embarks on an adventure through the forest. As Mo walks through the woods, they encounter friendly and fun forest friends...
Through these encounters, Mo learns various wisdom, such as how to prepare before embarking on a journey, how to greet someone they meet for the first time, how to share their feelings, how to come together and solve problems by supporting each other, and how to forget worries and enjoy the present moment.
However, all the animals they meet in the forest caution Mo to be careful of the bear living in the dark forest. With a mixture of fear and curiosity about what kind of animal the bear truly is, Mo imagines a terrifying bear in their mind.
Will little kitten Mo be able to find the gleaming light without encountering the scary bear?

This picture book offers courage to everyone facing a new beginning.
"Fear is something we don't know well."
It's common for us to feel more fear than excitement when facing new challenges. In unfamiliar environments and in front of unfamiliar people, we discover a version of ourselves that feels unfamiliar. While it's important to be cautious in everything we do, sometimes excessive fear can prevent us from moving forward. Often, this fear stems from the indistinct gaze, reputation, or rumors of others.
This book aims to convey the message of approaching new friendships and embarking on new adventures with an open heart rather than hasty fear.
The story of "Mo" is a picture book I created, featuring my pet cat, "Mo Daeli" I drew the illustrations using a pen. "Mo Daeli" followed my younger brother, whom we met on the road one winter in 2018, all the way to our doorstep. This adorable cat with a big, round dot near its nose is timid but very curious.
The name "Mo Daeli" was given to him as a play on words. It represents our family's brand, "Huginn & Muninn," which means "Furry Model" and "Assistant" respectively. "Mo Story" is a tale I imagined, wondering about the events in Mo Daeli's life before he met our family. Since we don't know where or how he was born and raised, it allowed for various imaginative possibilities.
"Mo" is still a young cat with much to learn. Unable to contain his curiosity, he sneaks out of the house one night and ventures into the dark forest. The story unfolds with the imagination of what might happen to the young and curious cat "Mo" in the dimly lit woods.
This book also carries a message I want to convey to my younger brother, who discovered Mo Daeli. Seeing his worried about new challenges and encounters, I wanted to show my support. I wanted to tell everyone facing new beginnings, just like my brother, "Don't be too afraid."
I hope that as you read, you'll find amusement in Mo's naive and adorable nature and cheerfully support his little adventures.
I freely depict what I carefully observed today, amusing imaginations, and everything I love. It often starts with doodles and evolves into artworks.
I also run a small brand called 'Huginn&Muninn' together with my father.
