Oliver is a little piece of a big puzzle. Like all of us, Oliver just wants to find where he fits, but finding his place in the great puzzle of life isn't easy... 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.… (més)

I really enjoyed both the message and the visual appeal of this book. Oliver is a puzzle piece that has a hard time fitting in with those around him. In an effort to fit in, he completely changes his appearance. It works, but he still isn't happy. He discovers it's better to be who he really is and he finds other puzzle pieces that realized the same thing. Together, they form a perfect little puzzle. This sends a great message about being comfortable with who you are and not changing to fit someone else's definition of normal. Pages are very colorful and vibrant with lots of detail. ( )

I liked this book for a couple reasons. First, the illustrations enhanced the story very well. By being able to see the shapes, sizes, and colors of the puzzle pieces it was easy to visualize where Oliver would and would not belong as well as get the emotions of the puzzle pieces. When the illustrations showed all of the purple square puzzle pieces you are able to predict that Oliver will not fit in with them and you can see exactly why he wouldn’t fit. The book also pushes readers to think about the issue that is portrayed it the book. The author does a good job of showing that when you try to force a fit that it won’t feel right until you find where the actual right fit is. The author is able to do this while still making it a children’s book and have the big idea stand out in a way where a child might not even realize that they are learning a life lesson. The purpose of this story is to show that you can’t rush or force yourself to fit in. When you find your true fit you will know and it will feel good because you aren’t pretending to be someone that you’re not. ( )

I think this is a great book. I loved reading this book, because of the illustrations in the book. I feel like they told a story of their own to help further the lesson of the story. For example, the puzzle pieces had word bubbles that helped the story. They would say things like “not enough purple”, when declining pieces to join their puzzle. I also really liked when Oliver finally found the puzzle that he belonged to. He belonged to a puzzle with another piece that were searching for where they belonged all throughout the story as well. For example, when he found his puzzle it says, “others had taped, cut, and glued in search of their fit to”. The lesson of the story is that you shouldn’t change who you are to fit in. You belong somewhere, it's just a matter of time before you find it. ( )

This amazing little book has a powerful message. Using puzzle pieces to create a picture show that everyone does not always fit in every spot. Oliver can not find where he fits, so he tries to change in order to fit in with others. That works, except he realizes that he is no longer himself. He shakes off his disguise and is once again alone. When he meets up with others that do not fit, they realize that they fit together and complete the picture. It has a great theme about not changing yourself to fit in with colorful illustrations that are eye catching enough to keep kids glued to the book without realizing they’re learning a valuable lesson in the process. This is a great book to read to young ones as well as older students who seem to be having trouble fitting in. It is also a great resource when children are trying to figure out what their strengths are and that it is okay to have different interests. It’s the perfect book to add to your home library and for teachers to use in their classroom. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley. ( )

I enjoyed reading this book in class. This book is filled with fun, colorful and animated illustrations which just captivates you. For example, I loved how the different puzzle pieces were made up of various shapes and colors because they each gave off unique characteristics. This book also holds a valuable message which is to fully be yourself because only you can offer the unique charm that you have to the rest of the world. Another reason why I find this book to be enjoyable is that it pushes the readers to think about tough, real-life issues such as being an outcast/misfit of a group. For example in the story, this one, small puzzle piece would go around to different groups of puzzle pieces to see if he can fit in; however, the other puzzle pieces would judge him by pointing out that he's too different from the rest of the group. After getting rejected from one group, this small puzzle piece would go and find another group to join, but only to experience rejection over and over again. At the end, this small puzzle piece accepted who he was, and showcased confidence in himself. It was only then that others started to see something special in him also, and he would eventually be apart of a group. In all, this book combats insecurity issues that any kid can have while growing up, and it ultimately encourages children to embrace their individualities. ( )
