I can’t believe I didn’t pick up this book earlier! I was searching for a happy book (given these times) and Riya’s book was simply that! It brings a big, cheerful smile on your face.

This is my second book by Riya. Her first book Nilay’s Wish is also a heart-warming book about a kid searching for a perfect gift for his mom.

She can skillfully capture the child-like emotions and then weave them into a beautiful story.

Ollie’s backpack is a narrative of a child carrying too much weight (or worry) on his shoulders.

Ollie’s backpack is for the people, who while travelling life’s journey forget the basics of life.

The book is a sweet reminder for adults to be gratuitous and not pick up all the worries that come their way. Sometimes, we need to let them go. For kids, it’s one of the most significant lessons we can teach them.

One thing that will certainly capture your attention is the graphics of the books. It’s so enticing that you cannot help but turn the pages.

This book is highly recommended for all age groups. It should be on your bookshelf as a reminder of marvellous things in life.

My rating for the book is 5 stars.
