Description

Oliver has always dreamed about where he will fit. Will he be in the mane of a unicorn? The tentacle of a pirate squid? The helmet of an astronaut? When he finally goes in search of his perfect place, he finds that trying to fit in is a lot harder than he thought. But like any puzzle, a little trial and error leads to a solution, and Oliver figures out exactly where he belongs.

Where Oliver Fits is a sweet and funny story that explores all the highs and lows of learning to be yourself and shows that fitting in isn't always the best fit.

Editorial Reviews

One of CCBC’S Best Books for Kids & Teens (2018)

"Atkinson’s message on being true to yourself is valuable . . . . His Photoshop artwork bursts with color and ingenuity." --Kirkus Reviews

"Find room on the shelves for this picture book, because feeling like you don’t belong is universal… A solid choice for discussion, and one-on-one or small group sharing." --School Library Journal

“[U]tter eye candy, with primary colours exploding on every page and each puzzle picture more vibrant than the one before… pure joy.” --Quill & Quire
