Oliver is a lucky kid. His family lives along the shore of Virginia’s North River, and his backyard is home to a variety of wildlife—from baby rabbits to the majestic great blue heron. Oliver spends his days playing along the river’s edge among the animals, paddling around in the cove’s calm waters in his canoe, and helping his family take care of the cove’s wild inhabitants.
But one day, storm winds push Oliver and his canoe into the dangerous waters of the North River! Will Oliver be able to make it back home safely? Or will he drift out into the ocean and be lost forever?
Oliver’s Adventure is a grandmother’s love letter to her grandson and the home they once shared. This isn’t just a story about a boy’s adventure; it’s a story about home, family, and how the love we give to the world around us carries on long after we’re gone.
