Ollie and the Wind
by Ronojoy Ghosh
Is the wind trying to tell us something when it blows through the trees? Ollie wants to find out. When it steals his hat and darts away with his scarf, he tries to discover if it’s just a pest or has something to say.
Ollie tries in vain to catch the wind so he can have his possessions returned but then realises the wind just wants to play. A story about playfulness, cooperation and friendship and a reminder that sometimes the best things appear out of thin air.
