A new series for toddlers! The Olly & Molly books cleverly show how a bit of imagination can inject fun into the everyday.
This new Olly & Molly book comes with five plastic sticking-plasters, that stick on and off over and over again, allowing readers to tend to Olly & Molly whenever they are hurt.
Oh dear, Molly’s tripped over and hurt her knee!
Let’s put a sticky plaster on it. She’ll soon feel better.
Olly is cycling. Oh, no! He’s fallen over and hurt himself! Should we put a sticky plaster on it? Yes, let’s!
The Olly & Molly books are colourful and engaging! The repetitive and simple storylines (and now the plasters!) ensure that children are able to participate with more than just their eyes and ears. And the surprise at the end of each story leaves them giggling and asking for more.
Antti Nikunen (b. 1982) has a graphic design background and he is the art director of a magazine. The Olly & Molly series was born out of Antti’s desire to bring humour into books for toddlers.

“One of the main messages from these books is that you don’t need much to be able to play. Your own imagination is the best toy.” – Helmet.fi
“The idea is to enthuse children – and to inspire their parents to help them learn more about their surroundings, create new games and, above all, be children.” – Apu blog
“These books make for warm-hearted reading and will bring adults as much joy as they bring to children. Having read the book, it is clear that the writer has written from a child’s perspective in order to present the reader with his own, unique outlook.” – Luetaanko tämä blog
“Nikunen’s style is fascinating to me. The stories are simple, and yet they’re still rich. Clear drawings, bright colours. They leave plenty of room for the reader’s own imagination, with everything being explained just the right amount, and not too much.” – Rita Mentor blog
