Olive the Alien by Kate Saunders
Published by The Five Mile Press
"Archie loves his little sister very much. But he doesn’t always understand Olive’s strange behaviour. Sometimes, Archie is convinced that baby Olive is an alien from outer space!"
Author & illustrator, Kate Saunders has written a baby sister story through the eyes of big brother, Archie. He is perplexed about the 'odd' behaviours of his fluffy, frilly, pink sister, Olive. He loves her very much, but thinks she is perhaps an alien with her 'baby talk' language, very LOUD crying, and the MOST DISGUSTING THING THAT ARCHIE HAS EVER SMELLED! Olive so obviously is an alien. Then one day, Archie's friend arrives with his little baby brother, Ned, and Archie realises that his little baby sister is not so alien after all.
Kate Saunders has not only written a wonderful heartfelt story, her illustrations capture the expressive eyes of each character, indicating the mood of curious Archie and the adorable Olive.
Olive the Alien will clearly resonate with children who have a baby brother or sister. They will instantly relate to the baby incidents and just 'get' this story. It is a certainty this story will open up baby behaviour discussion and encourage memory sharing from when they were a baby, ensuring smiles and laughter.
