Oliver and Patch


This is a beautiful book. The illustrations by Kate Hindley are both chic and cute, so parents and older children will love it as well as the under fives at whom it is aimed.

The story is of Oliver who has moved to the big city with his family. He finds it a lonely and scary place but then he comes across a little dog who seems to be lost, and he feels that at last he’s found a friend and someone he can look after.

But of course Oliver realizes that there is someone missing this little dog, so he shouldn’t keep him, much as he’d like to, and reluctantly he starts to try and find out who owns him.
