I’ve had all manner of treats this week so I started at the top of the pile with this deeeeeeeeelightful new picture book.
Olive andthe Big Secret oozes retro charm from every page with a fresh Richard Scarry –esque appeal, and you know how much I love a picture surprise underneath the dust jacket, well clever old Templar have gone above and beyond and hidden delightful pictures front and back – what a treat! (great attention to detail). With clever use of white space and delightful touches of hand written copy this is a lovely looking book indeed.
Molly tells Olive a secret which in turn Olive tells Jessie.......and Ziggy........and Joe.. who then tells Matt, who blurts it out to Lola and Bea.. by which point you too will be bursting to find out what Olives BIG secret is..
Then full circle Bea tell Molly who’s secret it was in the first place.. eeeeek! ..I bet you think I’m going to tell you what the secret was now… Well of course I’m not, you’ll just have to grab a copy of the book and find out!
