The perfect gift for beginning readers.


Praise For Merry Christmas, Ollie (reader) (Gossie & Friends)

"...the focus on Ollie’s childlike anticipation is right on target. Dunrea’s graceful ink drawings and beautiful washes offer an appealing alternative to more complex, but less satisfying Christmas picture books." October 15, 2008 Booklist, ALA

"Remaining true to his uncomplicated watercolor style, Dunrea maintains an element of charm to Ollie’s waiting, depicting his impatience as sweet and subdued, rather than manic and obsessed. Parents and children will immediately relate to this youngster’s excitement." October, 2008 School Library Journal

Clarion Books, 9780544553958, 32pp.
