Oliver and George

Peter Carnavas
New Frontier
ISBN: 9781925059083           RRP: $24.99

Oliver and George must be very good friends, considering how much Oliver is pestering George to play. Oliver tries everything to distract George, who is intently reading a book. Even a porridge pot on the head doesn’t seem to work. Then he snatches George’s book. George lets out a frightening roar – which suddenly puts him in the mood to play. But Oliver is now distracted by something else. This happy book is filled with loads of appeal for early readers. They are bound to enjoy the adorable George and enthusiastic Oliver as their lively images bounce around the pages.
