Wonderful Christmas gift. It was a perfect present for the boy I got it for! A fantastic book demonstrating making new friends and helping out in a pinch!
Not only is Tom an amazing artist, he is a stand up guy as well. Rather than have me wait for the printers to publish a calendar, he sent me one from his own personal stash. Then when delivery was running late, Tom personally looked into the tracking for me. It was definitely worth the wait. Every month you get an inspirational quote with Ollie and Friends cheering you on. I hope you make one for 2022!
It's impossible to not smile while reading about Ollie's experiences in this well formatted book. He's just so darn lovable! Tom, thank you for creating this fantastical world of Ollie Bug and combining your art with the written word.
I was more than pleased with my new treasure! I framed it and look at it every day and smile. I can’t help it! Super quality and makes me feel down right good!
I absolutely adore this calendar from beginning to end. June is my fave, flowers racing on lawnmowers...love it! The special days for each month add to its fantastical charm. I'm also pleased with the high quality print. Thank you, Tom, for imagining and creating characters that induce happy, fuzzy feelings.
