Sif, Brigitta Oliver. Candlewick, 2012. $17. PICTURE BOOK.
Oliver is more than happy to entertain himself with his puppets and books and his imagination. But every once in a while, Oliver realizes that he needs a real playmate. A lucky bounce of Oliver’s lonely tennis ball leads him to a likely new friend. Sif’s illustrations have just the right touch of whimsy for this engaging little book. I would love to see more of her illustrations and imagination.
