Friends Gossie and Gertie are waiting and waiting for Ollie to hatch. They try poking, listening to, even sitting on top of his egg - but Ollie is Ollie and he will decide when it's time to hatch. Any child that has had to wait for a new brother or sister will find Ollie irresistible! &nbsp&nbsp&nbsp&nbsp Featuring the childlike sensibility and expressive watercolor illustrations Gossie & Friends fans love, this brand-new Level 1 Green Light Reader comes with a bonus audio download. Page-turn signals guide early readers.
Olivier Dunrea is the creator of beautiful and well-loved children's books. A painter and a sculptor, his work centers around farms, animals, architecture, and folklore. He lives in the tiny village of Narrowsburg, New York, in the Catskill Mountains.

Customer Reviews of Ollie (Reader)

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Five Honks Gossie (a gosling) and her red boots are captivating. The story has really good pacing, perfect for letting toddlers study the great accompanying pictures and discover story elements. I like how Gertie (Gossie's favourite pal) is introduced too. This is a simple, sweet, engaging read about friendship and sharing.
