Olive and the Bad Mood

Olive and the Bad Mood has become Ivy’s new favourite book! She even brought the book into school last week and asked the teacher to read it to her class at story time. I then sat down with her this weekend and realised she’s had it read to her so many times, she has managed to memorise the entire book word for word!

It is really such a sweet book with the cutest illustrations. It’s a silly story about a cat called Olive who’s bad mood puts all of her friends in a bad mood as well… until thankfully candy jelly worms save the day!

The book is written and illustrated by Tor Freeman and published by Templar Publishing where it is available to buy online. (It’s also available from Amazon UK and USA .)

p.s. This is just one of the many wonderful books that will be available to purchase at The ShopUp event this Sunday and Monday. Templar Publishing and one of their imprint publishing companies, Big Picture Press, will be there with a lovely selection of books for children to read and for parents to purchase. They’re also bringing in some of their illustrators to offer fun craft sessions for the kiddos! We can’t wait!

Oh I’m so sad – I soooo wish I could be there!!! =o( Will have to feed off photos though.
And thank you for the tip Courtney, I’m just looking for the book to place an order for Santa and I’m the worst at picking them myself. But you always pick the best of them! Thank you xxx

What a brilliant book! (…& I have a little Olive who is occasionally prone to bad moods 😉 I think this may be a perfect present for her!) x

Right Rachel – I was thinking the same! I have a little Olivia that needs it – badly! Just had an episode after an episode of bad mood yesterday.

This is so cute, that your daughter loved the book so much, she wanted to share that with her classmates. Lovely.
