Olivia Kidney’s new apartment building is crazy! Talking lizards crawling everywhere. An exiled princess haunting the hallways. A tropical rain forest growing in 7B. Even an apartment made entirely of glass! Maybe Olivia’s father will get fired from his job as the building super, as he always does, and they can leave. But Olivia is tired of moving from place to place, from school to school. What she wouldn’t give for a little slice of sanity. And maybe a friend to share it with.
In the tradition of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Coraline comes a remarkable debut story that is quirky, fun, magical, and completely genuine. Ellen Potter offers a world where even the oddest characters feel right at home.
“Olivia Kidney is absolutely delightful. I sat down to glance at the story one evening, was immediately drawn in, and ended up chuckling my way straight through in a single sitting, though not without a trace of jealousy. What a smashing debut for Ellen Potter!”—Bruce Coville, author of My Teacher Is an Alien
