My Thoughts:

My, my, little Olive has certainly gotten himself all worked up as he finds out at school that the next day is Valentine's Day. What is he to do? As he states he is not ready for the big "I do" but what else can he do? So, he decides to hide until his mom finds him and promises she will make it all go away.

Well, that sounds great until little Olive realizes that that might just make all love go away. He doesn't want that! And now he is in a much worse pickle as a world without love is a world full of ...well a world that Olvie is not looking forward too.

Olive sounds like he is definitely a deep thinker and a bit of a worrier. Somewhat like I was. This was an adorable Valentine's Day book written in a clever rhyme of all that is going on in his head. I found it cute and humorous to be in a child's head and see what crazy things he might be thinking. Olive definitely has a big imagination.

I was provided a copy of this novel from the author. I was not required to post a positive review and all views and opinions are my own.
