Product Description

Oliver, Charlie and Lulu are best friends and they love to do everything together! But especially, the three friends love to play the best game ever---hide-and-seek! But when Lulu and Charlie decide to hide up in trees, Oliver can't reach them. . . since he is an elephant and he is too big to fit on or climb the tree. The friends go on a search to find the perfect tree for Oliver, but they discover that there is a reason that elephants don't belong in trees. Will Lulu and Charlie be able to surprise Oliver with a special tree?

Publisher's Description

Meet three adorable best friends from debut author/illustrator talent with a huge Etsy following
 
Oliver, Charlie, and Lulu love to play outside together. Their favorite game is hide-and-seek, but it’s not fun for Oliver when his friends hide in the trees—he can’t reach them! So the friends set off to find a tree that Oliver can play in.

But there’s a reason we don’t see elephants in trees, and just when Oliver is ready to give up the search, Charlie and Lulu surprise him with the perfect tree for them all to play in together!

Author Bio

She is the founder and imaginator for LullaLoo, LLC, which operates out of trafalgarssquare.com. Kit resides in sunny Southern California with her sidekick husband, four rollicking children, and a rowdy corgi. She dreams of someday having a backyard full of climb-worthy trees. This is her first book.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for OLIVER’S TREE:
 
 
STARRED REVIEW FROM KIRKUS:
“Warm, appealing watercolors defined with pen and ink and containing just the right amount of detail show the three friends . . . Young children will root for the three friends, enjoy the mild suspense and delight in the very satisfying ending. As gentle and unassuming as Oliver, this story thoroughly charms.” 
 
 
FROM BOOKLIST:
“In her debut offering, Chase effectively captures how friendship warms the heart. . . . An excellent story for little ones at bedtime and for sharing anytime with beginning readers.”
 
 
FROM PUBLISHERS WEEKLY:
“Chase’s crisp, chipper narration never attempts to manipulate readers’ feelings, and her restraint, combined with her subtly expressive characters and the elegant prettiness of her watercolor and ink drawings, lends the book a distinctly British lilt that inoculates it against treacliness. The “Awww” that will all but inevitably accompany the final scene—a rousing game of pirate pretend play—is thoroughly deserved.”
 
 
FROM SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL:
“An adorable elephant, a sweet-faced rabbit, and a pudgy little owl play hide-and-seek in the forest. . . . The pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations are muted and soft, and the text is spare and sweet. A quiet testament to friendship and creative problem solving.”
 
 
FROM SHELF AWARENESS:
This charming tale of friendship will have children and parents eager for more from first-time author and artist Kit Chase.”
