author/illustrator: Birgitta Sif
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, Oliverís day is never dull. There are bridges to cross, sharks to fight, and treasures to find! But maybe toys donít 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.
An imaginative child who doesnít quite fit in finds a kindred spirit in this utterly charming picture book from a debut author-illustrator.
