Editorial Reviews

Review

"(oliver)" contains crisp, attractive text and drawings, using space, light, and dark elegantly. Small children will delight in pulling open the sturdy pages and experiencing Oliver's transformation over and over." --School Library Journal

Book Description

Paper-over-board novelty book with ribbon that shows Oliver the egg on one side and Oliver the chick on the other in penultimate spread. "Oliver was an egg. There was nothing he could do about it.  He could roll to one side.  He could roll to the other.  He could even stand on his head.  But he was simply an egg and that was that.  Until one day, everything changed because miracles happen."

By Amy Oden on December 5, 2014
Format: Board book
I should've read the details more closely before ordering; I was expecting a standard board book, but this is nearly 2 inches thick. It doesn't take 3 minutes to read as one reviewer wrote, it takes about 10 seconds to read, as there is one short sentence per page on all of about 6 pages. The concept is cute, but it isn't even really a story, just a novelty item for people like me with sons named Oliver. One of the pitfalls of online ordering, I guess, I probably would not have bought it if I'd seen it in a store.

Everyone must read this book - it only takes about 3 minutes. It is such a sweet book and I encourage everyone to get it. It is the best book I've read in a long time.

This is the worst book I have ever read. And the condition it came in was awful.
