Big Time Olie

William Joyce. Laura Geringer Book, $15.99 (40pp) ISBN 978-0-06-008810-1

Familiar characters star in all new adventures this season and a pair of companion volumes encourage wordplay. In William Joyce's Big Time Olie, the robot boy hero makes use of the ""shrink-and-grow-a-lator"" when his parents exclude him from activities because of his size. Olie gets unexpected results when he hits the wrong buttons on the machine. (Oct.)
