A story about imagination and friendship that anybody should be able to relate to with fantastic illustrations that let you discover new things each time you read this book.
My kids love Oliver for all the right reasons.

and pictures are nice but stil I somehow expected them to come together with a short text story, while the text is instead made up of very few (sometimes very short) sentences.

Sweet, gentle story for kids who "feel a little different". 18 Oct. 2012
By Mount Cool - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is a sweet story of a boy named Oliver who is a little bit different, a little bit quieter, a little bit awkward. As the mother of an Oliver who is darling and delightful but definitely not always one to join in the crowd, this was a needed book both for my son AND for me. A charming tale reminding us that different is ok. And the happy ending is also such a sweet beginning.

Already a favorite 16 Jan. 2013
By Jessica at Cracking the Cover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
There are so many great things about "Oliver," it's difficult to know where to start.

Oliver is different, and that's OK. He has great imagination and he's happy being alone with himself. He also realizes that it's OK to be friends with other people. That he might not be the only one who is different. And sometimes you don't know something is missing until you find it.

Birgitta Sif's story speaks to children as well as adults. Many people who have children of their own will recognize glimmers of themselves in Oliver's tale.

Beautifully stylized illustrations pull the whole book together. This is one of my favorite picture books in a long time.

Kid's might not get it, but 21 Jun. 2013
By Rome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm giving this 5 stars due to how closely resembles my wife and I. We originally got this book from the library to read to our 2 year old, but she wasn't interested in it. After the first read, I thought the story was very cute and heartwarming with remarkable similarities to my wife and I. I then came to Amazon and ordered this for my wife for mother's day and it's a special book just for the 2 of us. We might let our child read it when they are older.
