Ollie & Moon Fuhgeddaboudit by Diane Kredensor
Ollie and Moon visit New York in this story. Moon sets out to make Ollie laugh, but NOTHING is working!
Random House Kids shared a copy of this picture book with me for review (thank you). It has been published, so look for it at your local bookstore.
Ollie and Moon are funny looking cats who travel together and are great buddies. Ollie laughs at almost everything so when they start out to explore New York, Moon says she's going to make him laugh. He says no, she can't make him and the dare is on.
Moon tries all sorts of things and Ollie won't laugh. It looks like she's losing. But then she has some help from an unexpected friend and they both crack up. No matter what age you are, you'll enjoy the "friend" and how it helped them.
The photos are excellent and really add to the story. You can do a photographic tour of New York highlights as well as follow Ollie and Moon in the quest to make Ollie laugh.
This is a fun series written for small ones. They'll enjoy reading this book again and again. And they'll be snorting by the time they get to the end of the story and the punch line the author chose. It's all in good fun.
