The Lovereading4Kids comment
An inspiring bath time fantasy for all those who long to be bigger and braver than they are. Oliver sets sail on a great adventure across the wide expanse of bath water which soon turns into a foaming ocean across which he rides with whales and mermaids before meeting a wild storm, boarding a pirate ship and fighting the crew seeing off a monster in an almost deadly encounter. Oliver’s heroism, despite his size, is appealing and the illustrations of his escapades ask to be looked at again and again.
Oliver Who Was Small But Mighty by Mara Bergman
The night the wind started to bump and to bash was the night the rain started to thump and to thrash. Oliver was small, he didn't like it at all. He wished he was tall and mighty. Oliver is having a bath during a thunderstorm and as the thunder gets louder and the storm gets more scary he uses his imagination to face his fears and overcome them.
On their previous book, Snip Snap:
"Nick Maland's clever perspectives make the alligator increasingly alarming as he swells to fill more and more of the page in this well-created story of facing down fear." - The Guardian
"To accompany this lively text, Maland creates pictures that not only mirror the writing, but also offer humour and fun on each page... Reading this picture book aloud is great fun for the reader and listener." - The Parents' Choice Foundation 2005
