Ollie and the Magic Workshop

By Alison Knowles; Illustrated by Sophie Wiltshire
Jessica Kingsley Publishers

Ollie is back with more adventures using his superpowers, and a chance to earn his second Captain’s stripe! With the help of his superpowers, Ollie is gaining the confidence to stand up to bullies and be himself. When some mean kids start to get him down, Ollie draws upon the superpower of emotional resilience, which serves as a suit of shiny armour against hurtful words. With this superpower, Ollie tries to help his new friend Mollie who lives in foster care learn to love and take care of herself. Can Ollie help Mollie to build her own emotional superpowers? And will he earn his second Captain’s stripe in the process?
