Ollie the Owllama, author Kim Wilson's first book, is a humorous chapter book inspired by her daughters love for owls and llamas. Ollie, the main character, has to manage the traits of spitting like his llama Papa and hooting like his owl Mama. When he is upset, he involuntarily spits and hoots at the same time and it all comes out together as one loud Pah-hoo! that is mistaken as a sneeze. His frustration grows as he navigates through his day of pah-hoos and uneaten grass, nettles and mice, when all he craves is a delicious stack of pancakes. Faced with solving his problem of being misunderstood, Ollie resolves his issues with honesty and the help of family and friends and receives a pleasant and unexpected surprise of acceptance and understanding as a result. Included are fun facts about owls and llamas.
