Editorial Reviews

Review

“Sweet and clever and a pure delight!” —Dan Yaccarino

"Just when Moon seems weary, Ollie knows how to cheer her up with a quick break to take funny snapshots in front of Parisian icons. Then it’s back to guessing Ollie’s best surprise yet, which is sure to wow young children as much as it does Moon. Bien fait." - Kirkus Reviews

"This is a charming picture book with photos from Paris that children will enjoy picking up again and again. Get yourself a copy!" - Book Faerie (blog)

"My mini literature critics gave Ollie and Moon an enthusiastic thumbs up, giggling over cartoon characters exploring Parisian landmarks they know so well." - La Mom Paris (blog)

"Unique and utterly charming" - Through the Looking Glass Review (blog)

I believe Ollie and Moon are going to be the next big thing in children's animation.

Ollie has a surprise for Moon and leads the way through the streets of Paris, passing traditional Paris landmarks, and stumbling across all sorts of things that Moon loves (cheese!) but she doesn't guess her surprise until the last page.

The two pals are so pleasing to the eye, simple lines, great coloring, and the perfect amount of silly. When the 6 year old was waiting for me to read to him at bedtime, I came in as he was flipping through the pages, just taking in all the pictures and illustrations. This is one of the books he will pick up when he doesn't want the pressure of reading a chapter book, but instead would rather be taken away by pictures. And that's OK by me!

I love how Diane Kredensor mixes her drawings with real photos of Paris. It reminds me of Knuffle Bunny and Trixie set against the New York backdrop - one of our favorites. Ollie and Moon seem to leap off the page while taking in the sites of France.

There is something so special about Ollie and Moon - I wish I could put it into words, but it's just that gut feeling that tells me this is the beginning of something great.

This new duo is sure to be one of our favorite pairs...but that's not all it is!

Ollie and Moon is currently in development as their own animated series!

My 16-month old daughter Kate just loooooves Ollie & Moon. The other day she walked over to her box o' books and started throwing them out of the box. She was looking for Ah Moo! and wasn't happy with anything else. When we couldn't find the book, I went downstairs and sure enough it was there. She was so ecstatic and actually cried if I took the book away.

Kate loves the bright colors and all of Moon's crazy hats! She gets excited when she sees Moon on the potty because she is just starting to potty train herself. She also really loves the big image of the vegetable stand because we always name all the veges, including Stanley's basket of apples and bananas. And the best part is when we get to the carousel with all the bright lights and animals.

We highly recommend this book! It's funny, colorful and features two best friends who really love and respect one another. I love it's positive message! We can't wait for book #2!!!

Discover the connection of two best friends, Ollie and Moon, one loves surprising friends and the other enjoys guessing the surprise before it happens. Ollie enjoys setting up the perfect surprise for his best friend Moon, while Moon enjoys discovering the surprise before its unveiling. Determined not to have his latest surprise unearthed by Moon too soon, Ollie takes Moon on an adventure through Paris. Moon's curiosity is at an all time high and begins guessing what the surprise could be when Ollie begins dropping clues along the way.

"As much as Moon loves getting surprises, she loves trying to guess what they are even more. Once she even found her birthday present - two days before her birthday."

Will Ollie reveal too much too soon or will his string of simple descriptions be enough to complete their travels through Paris? Find out on the fun loving adventure with expert illustrations and photography, blending the illustrations of Ollie and Moon into photographs of strategic locations throughout Paris.

Ollie loves to surprise his best friend, Moon. And there is nothing Moon likes better than trying to figure out those surprises before they have been revealed. She is tickled pink when Ollie stops by her apartment to let her know ... he's got a surprise in the works. Let the guessing commence.

This pair resides in the heart of Paris, so they are decidedly chic, as evidenced by Ollie's striped shirt and tiny beret. En route, they stop at the fromagerie, where Ollie reveals the surprise is round, just like Brie they are snacking on. Riding the Metro, Moon ferrets out that the surprise is also musical. As they get closer to the surprise, the combination of clues is more confusing than helpful. Moon has no idea what this round, bright, spinning, musical surprise is going to be. She is starting to wonder: will she even like it?

Sandra Kress has provided actual, beautiful photographs of Paris, that serve as the backdrop for the brightly colored characters. It's a cute way to present the story. I like that even thought the story features a pair of cartoon cats, we still get a real life peep at some great scenery. Even the row of bicycles and toilette is quite different from the American version. And yet Ollie still drags along a scrap of toilet paper on his paw when he emerges.
