Where Oliver Fits

Oliver has always dreamed about where he will fit. Will he be in the mane of a unicorn? The tentacle of a pirate squid? The helmet of an astronaut? When he finally goes in search of his perfect place, he finds that trying to fit in is a lot harder than he thought. But like any puzzle, a little trial and error leads to a solution, and Oliver figures out exactly where he belongs. 

Where Oliver Fits is a sweet and funny story that explores all the highs and lows of learning to be yourself and shows that fitting in isn’t always the best fit.

Sunt multe carti ilustrate pentru copii care imi plac, dar aceasta are unul dintre cele mai importante mesaje pentru copii si, de ce nu, pentru tineri. Intr-o lume tot mai falsa si tot mai bazata pe aparente, o poveste care te invita sa fii tu insuti/insati este tot mai necesara.

Oliver este o piesa de puzzle care doreste sa isi gaseasca locul in lume si viseaza sa faca parte din ceva maret. Dar calatoria lui pentru a se regasi e plina coborasuri si lipsita de urcusuri.

Incercarile lui multiple de a se mula de fiecare data pe un alt anturaj, de a-si schimba identitatea pentru a se potrivi intr-un alt loc, il fac sa inteleaga tot mai mult ca cel mai important nu e sa se incadreze intr-un spatiu definit, ci sa gaseasca acel loc care sa se potriveasca contururilor lui.

“Where Oliver Fits” e o carte pe care as lua-o intr-o calatorie in timp si as darui-o copilului din mine. Este o carte simpla, dar profunda, dragalas ilustrata si cu un mesaj clar. Lucas l-a indragit imediat pe Oliver, iar eu am incercat sa ii explic cat mai pe intelesul sau cum acest mesaj se traduce in viata de zi cu zi.

Sper din suflet ca aceasta poveste sa isi lase amprenta in sufletul celui mic si sa ii ofere increderea in el insusi de care va avea nevoie in viitor.

EN: I would buy 100 copies of this book and give them to random people on the street. I would travel back in time and give my so-much-younger self a copy even. 

“Where Oliver Fits” is simple, bold, emotional, beautiful and true. It’s definitely one of my top favorite books in Lucas’ library. 

For all those moments of doubts, for all those people I tried to surround myself with back in the day, but never really feeling like fitting in. 

It’s perfect for 3 years old, for 13 years old, but why not for 23 years old and even older. Because we all need a reminder of our own worth. And we are so much more than just another piece in a puzzle.
