From Winnie to Ollie
December 01st, 2016
Like many classics for young readers–Winnie the Pooh books, example–Paymaneh Ritchie’s My Name is Oliver, (Tellwell Publishing 2016 $6.99) was written by a parent to entertain their own child. Told from the perspective of a lovable but depressive six-year-old Beagel-Springer Spaniel who was adopted from the SPCA, this children’s book delves into mental health issues that include separation anxiety, allergies, anxiety and depression. Ritchie’s aim is to create a light-hearted story that will enable the reader to discuss tolerance, acceptance and unconditional love with children. A portion of the proceeds will go to the BC SPCA and the Beagle Freedom Project.
THIS BOOK WILL BE LAUNCHED AT:
Inlet Theatre in Port Moody. December 4th.
