An imaginative child who doesn’t quite fit in finds a kindred spirit in this utterly charming picture book from a debut author-illustrator.

Oliver is different. He enjoys his solitude. He likes playing with his friends, who are puppets, stuffed animals, and other toys. With his rich imagination, Oliver’s day is never dull. There are bridges to cross, sharks to fight, and treasures to find! But maybe toys don’t always give a boy everything he needs. Maybe he needs another kind of companion. Will Oliver discover a way to be, well, different? When his tennis ball rolls across the lawn into the yard of the girl next door, he just might be surprised.

About the Author:

Birgitta Sif studied art and design in the United States and worked as a children’s book designer at several publishers before moving to England to study illustration. She calls Oliver, her first book, "the beginning of the best journey I’ve ever taken." Recently she returned to live in her native Reykjavík, Iceland.

From Booklist:

On this title’s opening spread, children are introduced to Oliver, a bespectacled young lad who feels “a bit different.” He is depicted riding in a car, holding his stuffed green dinosaur, which doesn’t make him seem unusual in the slightest, particularly since things are much, much stranger around him: for instance, a woman on her bike pulls along a mouse in a wagon. Turns out Oliver’s quirk is that he enjoys solitude, and he hangs out with the aforementioned dinosaur, a bow-tie-wearing teddy bear, and a purple stuffed . . . thingy. Together they are subject to Oliver’s flights of imagination and have all sorts of adventures around the house. But boys and toys can’t do everything together—for some activities, you need a friend with a heartbeat. While Sif’s debut sometimes feels jumpy in terms of the text’s pacing, the artwork, with its loose pencil lines and pretty shades of indigo and mauve, depicts quirky family members and small, amusing details. In fact, the kooky characters are a great reminder to kids that everybody is wonderfully weird in their own way. Preschool-Grade 2. --Ann Kelley
