Precious and OliverBook - 1992
Precious and Oliver Mouse particularly loved two things--snuggling and cherry cheesecake. Sunday was their favorite day, because on Sunday they had a big dinner and cherry cheesecake for dessert, followed by a cozy snuggle. One Sunday, disaster struck when Precious slid right off Oliver's lap and got stuck in his armchair. So begins the quest to return to slim, trim, snuggable bodies. Replacing cheesecake and sundaes with walks, apples and carrots isn't easy, and Oliver gets very testy when Precious signs them up for dance fitness classes. But the conga and alfalfa sprout burgers begin to show their mark when Oliver can fit into his chair again. Even better, Precious can once again snuggle into Oliver's lap. The personalities come through clearly in the warm and wonderful 3-D illustrations--young readers will want to reach out and hug them. The Nutritional and Eating Disorders Clinic contributed to Patti Farmer's delightful light-hearted story that will win reader's hearts.
