Age Range: 4 - 7

KIRKUS REVIEW

 An exuberant story in singsong about the pleasures of sharing with friends, from the author of The Seven Silly Eaters (p. 223). Oliver Tolliver, perhaps an Airedale terrier, thinks he has the perfect home, for he has one of everything he needs. He invites a small gray tabby cat, Peggoty Small, in to admire his accoutrements, but is dismayed that she finds his arrangements less than inviting. Oliver makes haste to equip his house more hospitably and is soon sharing his happy home not only with Peggoty but with a whole party of new friends as well. The simple story is borne along in lighthearted verse and busy, full-bleed paintings; children will enjoy touring Oliver's ``little old tumbledown house,'' with its riot of colors, jumble of patterns, curvaceous furniture, and dancing perspectives. Finding all the things Oliver adds to his house to make it fit for two is a pleasant challenge. (Picture book. 4-7)
