Riya Aarini comes back with yet again with the adventures of Ollie in the 2nd book of the Carefree Ollie series.
Ollie has lost his second tooth. He dozes off while waiting for the tooth fairy. And the next morning, Ollie wakes up to find his new pet chameleon in a glass tank. With all his joy, he names him Haffiness (instead of Happiness) since his tooth fell off, he pronounces, ‘f’, instead of, ‘p’.
Yet again, Ollie teaches a brilliant lesson of not taking our loved ones for granted (not limited to humans but also our friends in the animal kingdom).
Like her previous books, her new book is not just for the early readers but also adults too. Most often, it is adults who forget the lesson of gratitude. We forget that the people around us need to know how much they mean to us. Only when we lose them, we realize their importance.
The illustrations depicting Ollie losing his teeth to him being sad when he lost his pet are so real. They bring in pure joy. They are pure and joyful to read through the book.
And now the question is, will Ollie understand this when his pet goes missing?
