Oliver the Ornament Meets Marley & Joan and Abbey by Todd M. Zimmermann and illustrated by Kyle Hernandez. Oliver the Ornament Meets Marley & Joan and Abbey is the third in our seven-book series. This book tells the story of how Marley & Joan and Abbey entered the family’s collection of ornaments. This time, it’s little Holly who tells the story of how her Grandparents gave her both of these beautiful ornaments. Grandparents are such an important part of the tradition of Christmas ornaments, so we’re excited to introduce them in this story.
Also in this story, we're introduced to Nora the Menorah. Nora is a gift from the Nelson family for Holly's best friend Ruthie. Holly insists that Ruthie feel welcome in their home, so she asks her parents to purchase a menorah for her little friend. Little did they know that just like the ornaments, Nora, too will come to life, spreading holiday cheer. Nora will also do what she can to fight off Nellie, who is still determined to ruin Christmas for the entire household.
As our story unfolds, we find that Nellie, the naughty ornament left behind in the attic has not given up on spoiling Christmas for the Nelson family and all the ornaments. She’ll do her best to ruin Christmas, but just as she’s about to succeed, Oliver, with the help of his friends will save the day. This heartwarming story is sure to delight children of all ages and leave you on the edge of your seat for what’s to come next. We hope the story continues the tradition of bringing families together to tell stories of their own ornaments. Because after all…. Every Ornament Tells a Story.
My Opinion: This is a great story and perfect for Christmas as you encounter those good and one that wants to be on the naughty list.
