Bonnie

Cherry and Olive

Cherry and Olive - Benjamin Lacombe 'Cherry Sullivan prefers reading books to playing with the other children in her class.'Substitute the name 'Cherry' with 'Bonnie' and that's my life story. :) Cherry is a little plump and the other kids at school make fun of her but she remains quiet, never saying anything anything in response to their cruel words. She helps her father out at his job at the animal shelter after school which is where she discovers a wrinkly little dog she names Olive. The two become fast friends and when the same girls that pick on her at school start making fun of Olive, she finally finds the courage to stand up to them.Very cute story with beautiful illustrations, I will definitely be keeping an eye out for more from Benjamin Lacombe.
