    Beautiful Book!

    My daughter loves this book, and I love it because it sends a great message about how important one person or oyster can be. The illustrations are fantastic. My daughter really is fascinated by the drawings and now she wants to be an artist - gotta love that!

    I was enchanted by this simple but important story about Olly and his quest to find his purpose. The illustrations are extraordinary. The underwater world of the Chesapeake Bay comes alive with vivid colors and imaginative portrayals of the main characters. As an educator, I would recmmend this book to becme a part of every library collection.

    Olly is Awesome!

    I bought this book for my daughter. It¿s very cute and funny. I found myself smiling as Olly learned how the other animals and ultimately himself were a great team of housekeepers. The writing is sharp and filled with new vocabulary to spark young minds. The illustrations are fantastic. They not only bring the story to life, but the illustrator left little surprises on the pages like a treasure hunt. I won¿t spoil it, but kids will love it. I highly recommend this for any parent, teacher or librarian looking for a new book to add to their library.
