Very Busy Life of Olaf and Venus: Carby Pierre Pratt
Jump in the car with Olaf the Elephant and Venus the Mouse. What will zoom past the window on the way to the beach? No matter how they're spending their time, Olaf and Venus lead a life of simple pleasures and jolly surprises. Toddlers will delight in Pierre Pratt's bold, color-saturated artwork and whimsical cast of characters, even as they learn simple words.
A quartet of brightly hued, near-wordless board books charts the daily rounds of best pals Olaf the Elephant and Venus the Mouse. The storylines are cleverly conjured from just half a dozen droll scenarios, and young children will get a thrill out of spotting the familiar objects (dog, telephone, chair, cheese, and so on) highlighted on each sturdy page.
Meet the Author

Always fascinated by illustrations, he began creating comic strips as a teenager and has since found a career in creating artwork for magazines and advertisements. His true love, however, is illustrating children's books, as it enables him to communicate in a more "personal and privileged way directly with children." Pierre Pratt has won numerous awards for his illustrations, including the Governor General’s Award in Canada, the UNICEF Award at the Bologna Book Fair, and the Mr. Christie Award. He currently makes his home in Montreal.
