Oliver

Publisher: Walker Books

Oliver is a little bit different and most of the time this suits him very well. He is happy living in his own world where his imagination takes him on great adventures to faraway places and creates good friends for him.

But sometimes Oliver gets lonely by himself, until one day when a lost tennis ball takes him on his greatest adventure yet.

Minimal text and quirky, expressive illustrations full of subtle detail combine to make this endearing story about a boy who doesn’t quite fit in a real joy. This stunning picture book will resonate with any child who has felt left out, and is a wholehearted celebration of individuality.
