olga da polga
michael bond * catherine rayner
Olga da Polga is nosy, mischievous, boastful and permanently hungry, and she’s left the pet shop to start a new life with her owners. Her new home is a large and airy hutch, and it’s not long before she meets Noel the cat, Fangio the hedgehog, and Graham the tortoise.
And her garden companions soon discover that Olga loves an audience. From the moment she arrives she tells them stories about her wild and exciting adventures. Although they are not always sure whether to believe everything Olga says, one thing is certain—since Olga moved in, life is never dull!
This sumptuous gift edition of author Michael Bond’s cherished children’s classic is illustrated with stunning watercolor and screen printed images created by Greenaway Medal winner Catherine Rayner.
It makes the ideal family or classroom read aloud, as each chapter is a self-contained story.
