Where Oliver Fits

Oliver has always dreamed about where he will fit: the mane of a unicorn? The tentacle of a pirate squid? When he finally goes in search of his perfect place, he finds that trying to fit in is a lot harder than he thought. Where Oliver Fits is a sweet and funny story that explores all the highs and lows of learning to be yourself and shows that fitting in isn’t always the best fit.
