The story begins:

Olive was rather a shy girl. She rarely left the house except to visit the library in Craggy Bay with her Dad and borrow books. Olive LOVED books.

However, Olive’s happy life is rocked on a rowing trip with her Dad. Olive drops a book that sinks to the bottom of the ocean. A mysterious creature finds the book and after discovering that books seem to bring enjoyment to people, it steals all of the books in town,. The only problem – it doesn’t know what to do with them. Meanwhile, the townspeople are unhappy without their books and it is left to Olive to track down the thief and teach him the joys of reading – and sharing stories.

Graham Carter’s illustrations are a visual delight. The style is colourful and contemporary but the mood is distinctly traditional.
