Praise

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.”
