Description


This beautiful edition of Tomie dePaola’s progressive 1979 classic stars a special little boy who won’t give up on the dreams that make him unique.

Oliver Button is a sissy.

At least that’s what the other boys call him.

But here’s what Oliver Button really is: a reader, and an artist, and a singer, and a dancer, and more.

What will his classmates say when he steps into the spotlight?

Praise For…


"DePaola’s 1979 picture book about a boy who can’t throw a ball to save his life but who enjoys paper dolls, dress-up, and (as he discovers to his delight) tap-dancing is as fresh and necessary as ever...the feelings are still just right.
