5.0 out of 5 stars Charming Children's Book for the Young and Young at Heart November 24, 2010
Format:Kindle Edition
This charming picture book offers gentle lessons linking fun and friendship with physical activity. The book presents the idea that competition can be fun. It makes the further point that winning isn't the most important goal. The bright, friendly illustrations and simple text will appeal to the four to eight year old in your life. This book would be a wonderful way to start talking with young children about friendship, competition, and the importance everyone feeling good about themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice little childrens book. December 9, 2010
By Rainer
Format:Kindle Edition
If your kids liked "The Tale of the Littele Duckling", they will love this one. The illustrations are colourfull and charming again. And the story is great.
This time the story is about Lollopy, an athletic rabbit, who arranges some kind of olympic games for his friends.
The book issues friendship, competition and self-assurance and describes them in way that young children can understand.
A very recommendable childrens book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun to Read Together November 19, 2010
Format:Hardcover
A fine book adults and small children will enjoy paging through together. Lollopy Goes Olympic is filled with colorful illustrations of the outdoors, activities and animal characters. It is written to appeal to children and generate discussion on important themes.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Fun Story January 29, 2011
Format:Paperback
The illustrations are just right for this age group, though I would have liked the author to also use a graphic artist to give a better layout rather than the simple page to page of picture to text.I don't wish to be picky but if the target age is 4-6 years, then the use of words like 'rejoiced' 'mentioned,'figured,'instead of a simple 'said,' can be confusing as is 'excellent,' instead of just 'good.'
The theme of the story is to show that taking part in competitions is more important than winning. As the story brings us to the animal Olympic Games, I was disappointed that the events were dismissed in one sentence near the end. I think the children would have loved to read how the animals performed. Sniffy came in last,and Lollopy came first-how did it happen? Although Lollopy makes an overlong speech at the end to comfort poor Sniffy, I'm not sure it works.Being a UK author, I am concerned at the price of this book, as similar books retail around $7, but maybe prices are higher in the USA. There are other books by this author, using the same illustrator, and children should find them entertaining.
