Retired Teacher Reconnects with Children through Stories
Juvenile fiction tells a tale of exceptional friendship between cats and dogs.
“I no longer teach in schools, but I still like to share stories to children. Through this book, I hope to reach all the children in the world.”
Last April 4–7, 2016, the Bologna Children’s Book Fair had recently concluded its 53rd edition. Among the children’s books that were featured in the fair was Margee Minter’s Ollie’s Unlucky Day. The event was held at the Bologna Fair Centre in Italy.
In the story, Lucky, the cat, and Ollie, the dog, have been friends for a long time. They have enjoyed playing games and being together. On Ollie’s fifth birthday, his mother invites all his doggie friends but leaves out Lucky. Bothered, Lucky waits on the top of a tree to watch an all-dogs party. Will he leave the dogs to continue their exclusive party, or will he go and join them?
The author’s dedication to children and her teaching profession had inspired her to write her own book. She says, “I no longer teach in schools, but I still like to share stories to children. Through this book, I hope to reach all the children in the world.”
Ollie’s Unlucky Day enlightens readers about the unlikely relationship between cats and dogs that is widely known today.
