Dunrea, Olivier Merry Christmas, Ollie! Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, 2008. $12.99 EARLY READER Content: G.
Ollie and his friends are waiting for Christmas to begin. They wait together and hang their stockings. After stomping around in the snow, Father Christmas Goose flies over and leaves them presents.
This book has all of the adorable characters from Olivier Dunrea’s books, but the story line is completely boring. The simple sentences make it a great for new readers. It was short and there are better Christmas books out there and better stories with these characters in them.
