Olive and the Bad Mood

I am very happy to have my second book about Olive the cat publishing this week. 

Following on from Olive and the Big Secret, here comes...

Olive is in a bad mood - today is not a good day. And look at all her friends, getting in her way! No, Olive does not want to play with Molly, she doesn't like Matt's hat and Joe is rubbish at throwing balls. 

Nothing's so good for a bad mood as passing it around. But when Olive's cheered up by some jelly worms, why are her friends suddenly so grumpy? And who's going to turn their frowns upside down?

I've loved being able to do a second book about Olive and her friends. I feel like I get to know them better and better - how they react to things, what they feel. And it was great to give them a whole new wardrobe... I quite covet Matt's clothes - his look is "Santa Fe chic" in this one. Poor old Joe only gets accessories, but he has different coloured glasses in this book! That's what you get for being born with a shell, Joe!

There is a nice review for Olive here by Katie at Storytellers, Inc.

With grateful thanks to Amelia, Amy, Daniel and of course, David and Brett.

Olive and the Bad Mood is published this week by Brubaker, Ford & Friends, an imprint of Templar Books, and by Candlewick Press in the United States.
