Make Way For Books
The rich, sumptuous illustrations alone make this book an instant favorite. But, it is the noble traits cloaked in warm tones that redeem the retelling of an otherwise very cold tale. This adaptation wisely portrays what is essential for good storytelling without sensationalizing dark details. Age-appropriate first-person narrative emphasizes the reality of good times and bad, and that daily circumstances occupy a small piece of a very large picture.

Oliver, small, alone, and suffering, still dares to hope. He chooses wisely, flees oppressive treatment, and is given opportunity to experience the healing power of compassion. Readers see the sadness, the exhaustion, the resolve, and the joy making this read a complete and meaningful experience for all ages.
