Olivia Kidney's new apartment building is crazy! Talking lizards crawling everywhere. An exiled princess haunting the hallways. A tropical rainforest growing in 7B. Even an apartment made entirely of glass!

Maybe her father will get fired from his job as the building super, as he always does, and they can leave. But Olivia is tired of moving from place to place, from school to school. What she wouldn't give for a little slice of sanity. And maybe a friend to share it with.

In the tradition of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland comes a remarkable debut novel that is quirky, magical, and completely genuine. Ellen Potter offers us a world where even the oddest of characters feel right at home. Come in for a visit: you'll never want to leave.

    " really cute, a fun little read. i mean, it took me like 2 hours but it was still nice. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 2/19/2014

    " A slightly spooky book with some sentimentality. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tweller83 | 2/6/2014

    " This was a cute, easy read. Olivia is trying to cope with the death of her brother (which the reader doesn't find out about until at least 1/2 way through the book). Fantasy story with lots of different crazy characters. Very fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bridge | 1/31/2014

    " Good, I just randomly bought it thinking it looked a bit boring but turned out I was wrong, I liked it a lot and I had to read the next book an then the next. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberley Little | 1/29/2014

    " Oh my gosh, this book is so funny and brilliant and suspenseful. I love Olivia! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 1/25/2014

    " This book took a few chapters to get going, but it ended up to be a pretty good book. Seemingly unrelated stories pulled themselves together in, some predictable, some not, ways. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle | 1/21/2014

    " 3 1/2 stars all the way! A delightfully quirky and heartwarming story! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelsey | 1/18/2014

    " One of my favorite books growing up. I read this back in elementary school "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Zoe Marston | 1/15/2014

    " This book was great!! It was a really quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Pierson | 1/9/2014

    " Although I "only" gave this book four stars, I will read the other books in the Olivia Kidney series. This book reminded me of a Polly Horvath novel--quite zany and eccentric, but good. I had to suspend disbelief for most of the book, but that's part of the fun. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 natercopia | 1/8/2014

    " I was slightly bored for the first half but slowly it picked up. Quirky characters, weird little adventures and a bit spooky and sad towards the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Laila | 12/17/2013

    " Subject matter a little heavy, writing not that great. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jordan | 11/26/2013

    " THIS BOOK IS ABOUT A GIRL THAT IS LEARNING HOW TO SPEAK TO GHOSTS.HER DREAM IS TO SPEAK TO HER DEAD BROTHER.DOES SHE SUCCEED?DOES SHE GET WHAT SHE WANTS?YOU CAN FIND OUT...... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyla Lamb | 11/13/2013

    " I loved the detail and how it ended. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Librarian | 11/13/2013

    " This was odd and trippy. Olivia lives in an apartment building inhabited by magical tenants. Not magical in a fairyland rainbow way- darker than that. I think this would appeal to super imaginative kids who don't need a linear story but just want weird stuff to happen. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonny | 8/6/2013

    " I love this book! It is so creative. Imagine all of the quirky people you could meet in any city apartment building. Olivia really is a remarkable little girl. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristy | 7/14/2013

    " The greatest book since Alice in Wonderland. Is Olivia delirious? In denial? Psychic? You'll have to decide for yourself. The last few pages are worth the entire ride. Some of the smartest writing in Children's Literature today. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ME | 12/21/2012

    " My grand daughter enjoyed this book and I wanted to see what she liked. In the end, not a bad story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jdiedrichs | 11/14/2012

    " We all liked it but there's a rather ruthless pirate that likes to drown people and a couple of ghosts and it was a bit scary for my daughter who's a bit sensitive. It's all very absurdist and I think most kids would probably find it okay. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ☆Expecto Patronum☆ | 10/16/2012

    " Creative writing, Ms. Potter "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jessica | 8/4/2012

    " Awesome books - not just this one - for any kid (or adult). Just such a great series. Olivia is one plucky kid and very self-assured. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Emily | 4/13/2012

    " This book was bizarre. It only took a couple of hours to read. It was supposed to be Alice and Wonderland-ish but the author didn't pull it off very well. The way it all came together in the end was interesting and a little bit surprising but I wouldn't ever read this again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kyla | 2/11/2012

    " Keep on keepin' on, Ellen Potter. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 3/21/2011

    " Awesomer than awesome, but again, this has the same problem as the first book... Some parts just DON'T APPEAL to kids like me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Melissa Marie | 3/19/2011

    " Spooky and Funny, what. Perfect for kids who likes Ghosts and Goons "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 12/22/2010

    " One of the first novels I've ever read. I wasn't such an avid reader back then, so this must be a good book if I finished it! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bowoo | 9/19/2010

    " This is an awesome book about an exit academy. Teaches u how to die! Ellen Potter has a great imagination! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 7/1/2010

    " When I was younger my mom and I would read this together every night till we finished it... I thou8ght it was the best book in the world back then! :) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jana | 5/21/2010

    " This was just ridiculous. It has crazy ideas, that I love, about things you wouldn't normally think about. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brett | 11/30/2009

    " Interesting concept of the death process. Olivia Kidney is very likable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary | 11/4/2009

    " Olivia and her father find themselves in a new home with a strange owner who seems to be up to no good. Slightly darker than the first Olivia Kidney, but still as fun and exciting. Fans of the first will be thrilled that Olivia's adventures are continuing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Doofenshmirtz | 7/5/2009

    " (Note: Same book as Olivia Kidney and the Exit Academy.) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridge | 4/29/2009

    " I liked it, very catching. I could barely put the book down when I was reading it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Bridge | 4/29/2009

    " I think it;s my favorite one. I liked it a lot. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jane | 2/22/2009

    " I'm becoming a huge fan of Ellen Potter . . . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ashley | 1/29/2009

    " The Olivia Kidney books, thus far, seem to get off to a slow start and then I can't put them down! Unique and imaginative and a little...weird, these books are a solid pick. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sydney | 11/2/2008

    " This book was confusing at first but you will get it if you keep reading it. It is sort of a slow read. But you could try it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Emma | 4/6/2008

    " This book is the best book ever! I loved it so much that i was sad when i finished it!!!!!!!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 3/17/2008

    " If you like ghost this book is for you. Even if you don't like ghost it is still a great book. "
