Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ollie and Moon are best friends, and Ollie loves surprising Moon almost as much as Moon loves guessing Ollie's surprises. Today, Ollie has the best surprise yet for Moon, and she can't wait to guess what it is! As they gambol through the streets of Paris, hints about the surprise accumulate every step of the way. Will Moon guess Ollie's surprise before they reach it? Tickled readers will be guessing right alongside Moon!

Diane Kredensor is an Emmy award-winning children's television director and artist. She was inspired to write this "buddy story" by her love of people, her love of travel, and her love of cheese! The distinctive art style features Diane's bold, stylized characters superimposed atop Sandra Kress's charming photographs of Paris. French words and landmarks add to the fun. This delightful friendship story will keep readers laughing as they join Ollie and Moon on their cumulative guessing game through the City of Light.

Review:

"In the main story line of Kredensor's debut, cartoon cat Ollie offers a surprise to his friend Moon. With mounting excitement, she asks questions and collects clues that accumulate throughout the pages. 'So my surprise is... ROUND and MUSICAL, it has LOTS OF COLORS, it has FUR, HOOVES, and FEATHERS, and it's BRIGHT with LIGHTS!' (Spoiler: it's a carousel ride.) It's an oddly unfocused work; it feels like the second volume of a series whose first volume has gone missing. Kredensor's drawings of the two goggle-eyed cats are shown against Kress's photographs of Paris, where the duo lives, and French vocabulary is sprinkled throughout ('Ollie's stomach was growling, so they stopped at the fromagerie to buy some Brie'). Laughs are thrown in whether they advance the story or not; on the title page, a Paris toilet is the vehicle for some light bathroom humor, as Ollie emerges with paper stuck to his paw; elsewhere, he surprises Moon in another bathroom. It's entertainment, but not the stuff memories are made of — despite the Parisian setting. Ages 3 — 6. (Apr.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright PWyxz LLC)

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.
