Oh, Oliver. No matter how much he stretches his limbs in winter, lifts logs in the spring, soaks up sun in the summer, or munches mulch in the fall, he'll never be bigger than Sherman—and nobody ever notices the second biggest tree in Sequoia National Park. But in this tale for readers 4 to 7, Oliver finds some new friends that help him discover he's been part of something larger all along. In their first picture book, full of witty observations in the text and the illustrations, Josh Crute and John Taesoo Kim tackle the familiar feeling of being in someone's shadow, and even provide a few real-world "seconds" at the end.
