Moon loves to make her best friend, Ollie, laugh. On this particular day, however, her favorite gags aren't doing the trick! The two make a bet on whether or not Moon's crazy antics will be enough to bring back Ollie's usual ha ha's, hee hee's, and ho ho's.

One of my favorite places to travel to is New York City so when I spotted this book, with the Statue of Liberty and the bubble shout-out "Fuhgeddaboudit!", I knew this was a book for me. If you know ths city, the photos of actual sights that compose the backgrounds are fun. But what made me laugh out loud in the library was the event that makes Ollie finally laugh! haha...heehee...hoho! Read it and see!

Here we have two characters who just love each other's company. Normally Moon loves to make Ollie laugh, but her antics aren't working today. She makes a bet that she can make him laugh, but the best she seems able to accomplish is a smile, until both of them crack up. Your youngster will laugh, even if Ollie doesn't, and everybody will get a kick out of the New York conclusion. Enjoy.

I like Ollie & Moon but I got a little lost with this one. I'll have to try it again on another day.

re-read it today 5/27 - I think I appreciated this one more the second time around. won't bump my rating up to a four but would move it up to a 3.5.

Moon's efforts to get Ollie to laugh are kind of sweet.

Ollie and Moon's second book featuring two cats using real photos as illustrations (scenes of New York) behind the hand drawn cats. Focus on making each other laugh, we have to wait for a bird to poop before it happens.

Story = Okay
Illustrations = love

How can you not adore silly, illustrated characters with real photos of NYC as their backdrop? I just wish I liked the actual story better.

I'm not crazy about it, but I do appreciate the Simon & Garfunkel reference in the subway, and cats with poop jokes are always funny at this juncture in my life.

My formative years were spent dressing my dog in old baby clothes, reading MAD magazine, and dreaming of the day I could head to the “big city.” After a stint in advertising, I escaped my small town Maryland home to pursue big adventures in Los Angeles.

My career blossomed from intern on Hanna Barbera’s The Pagemaster, to character designer on MGM’s The Pink Panther and Klasky Csupo’s Duckman. I sp
