Ollie won’t come out of his egg—he’s waiting. Gossie and Gertie desperately want Ollie to come out. Ollie rolls around, stands on his head, and finally rolls right out of his nest, but he won’t come out of his shell. Olivier Dunrea often writes about the farm animals that surrounded him when he was growing up, including this hilarious trio of goslings. Ollie, a story of friendship, patience and independence, complements its predecessors Gossie and Gossie and Gertie.

Listener Opinions

    " I *love* all of these stories by Dunrea. When I have kids of my own these will definitely be some of the first I read to them! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Nicol | 12/1/2013

    " Baby's first book about reverse psychology. But also funny, warm, and one of our favorites. The tension of the story (Ollie won't come out of his egg) is simple but compelling, and the end still brings a smile to my face. Dunrea's illustrations are bright, expressive, and appealing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shayla Drumm | 11/27/2013

    " This is a very simple, cute story for children under the age of 4. It depicts the very nature of many children in this age group! They giggled the entire time I read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 11/24/2013

    " Megan loves this book, and I love the humor. A great boardbook read. I want to buy it to add to the collection. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joni | 11/21/2013

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anna | 11/15/2013

    " I love this series of books. I think it is one that parents enjoy reading as much as the kids. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kaethe | 10/30/2013

    " The Gossie and Ollie books are adorable. They make excellent gifts to parents and/or toddlers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carrie Charley Brown | 10/12/2013

    " This is a simplistic and delightful character-driven picture book. Ollie is feisty, independent, and steadfast in his ways. Children will want to read this again and again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emma | 10/3/2013

    " Ollie's still inside of his egg and he WON'T COME OUT! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 10/1/2013

    " So cute....we love these books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jess | 9/26/2013

    " Ollie just won't leave the egg...yet. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianna | 9/12/2013

    " I love Dunrea's books! This one is no exception, and my 2 year old had fun seeing Ollie's egg, then Ollie! "Egg, Duck,! Duck in dat Egg!" "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 8/22/2013

    " The illustrations are cute as always. I love the facial expressions and "reverse psychology" they use to get Ollie out of the egg. But again, as usual I struggle with the abrupt ending...I guess I just expect more wrap-up, even from a children's board book! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amberly | 7/18/2013

    " Very sweet story about waiting for Ollie to hatch. Lovely illustrations. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tara | 6/26/2013

    " Nice illustrations. A cute story about exploration and defiance (not in a bad way) or maybe it's more proper to say independence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 jacky | 6/24/2013

    " I liked this better than Ollie the Stomper. Missed the ending because I had to leave the room to get Natalie something. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Phannnie | 6/18/2013

    " I didn't love this book. I felt it was lacking in story development. I know it's a kids book, but still. bleh. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beverly | 6/15/2013

    " One of the sweetest, cutest geese ever! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carol | 6/13/2013

    " I think this is my favorite of the Dunrea gosling books. My daughter & I especially love the last line. We like to think that Ollie is a cheeky bird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Finn Pennekamp | 6/3/2013
