Olive and the Embarrassing Gift

By: Tor Freeman

First line: Joe gave Olive a gift.

Why you should read this book: The gift of friendship is something separate from gifts given in friendship, as Olive the cat learns when Joe the turtle gives her a hideous hat to celebrate their bestie status. Olive does everything possible to get out of wearing her present, short of actually admitting she hates it, while her other friends snicker at Joe's terrible taste in headgear. When Olive realizes that her shame is second to Joe's disappointment in her, she realizes that it's worth a lot more humilition to show her friend how much she cares.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You don't care who gets hurt in your quest for fashion.
