Sometimes the best things appear out of thin air

Sometimes the best things appear out of thin air
The wind blows all day on Ollie’s island. There aren’t many people around, but there’s lots of space to play.

One day the wind steals Ollie’s hat. Then it darts away with his scarf. But is the wind just naughty, or is it trying to tell Ollie something?

A stunning picture book from a new author-illustrator talent.

Reviews

Ollie and the Wind is a sweet story of observation, experiment and discovery. The illustrations take centre stage and the simple yet rich text illuminates the pictures. This is a highly original book to promote discussion around environmental and friendship themes.
