Born in the midst of a global pandemic, Ollie is a gentle reminder that kindness and friendship can be found in the darkest times.

The book is a funny, beautifully illustrated ‘read aloud’ tale for sharing. Just how does an octopus turn into all the colours of the rainbow? 



 Jolly Ollie has left his cosy home in Scotland and travelled all the way to Australia. Join him and his new companion Jordan as they tour the country in a charming story that is even more bright and brilliant than the first.

There are more rainbows, more moments of magic, and more of Ollie’s gentle lessons of kindness and friendship.

Our happy readers

“Great book for reading aloud to kids, heartwarming, informative story yet with enough silliness to keep them amused. Big bright pages to share while snuggled up together. What’s not to like?”

“Ollie brought the perfect blend of joy, education and enchantment to our bedtime reading. The book is filled with hidden treasures and we can’t get enough of the rhyming sea creature facts.”

“What a joy this book is! Brightly coloured, inclusive illustrations beautifully drawn accompany a text rich in fun, poetry, and educational content. Two copies to the homes of various nieces and nephews aged from 2 to adulthood have made it obvious that this is a book to treasure for a long time, from bedtime story to first reader and onwards. And who knew that curious fact about starfish? Shhhhhh…”

“Absolutely loved this book. Something magical about it for young and old. Everyone needs a Jolly-Ollie Octopus in their life. He can lighten up the dullest moment and definitely adds a splash of colour to the world. Have already bought my second copy.”

“With thought-provoking ideas and lovely illustrations ‘Jolly Ollie Octopus’ may well become a future children’s classic.”

“This is a great book. My son loves all the interesting facts and wants to head, flying by seagull airlines of course, to the highlands to meet sweet Ellie Mae.”
