Item Description...
Outline ReviewParents can be forgiven for wondering what it is that appeals about William Joyce's Ping-Pong-headed space hero, Rolie Polie Olie. But read about him and his family to any child under five, and there's no doubting that the attraction of the Rolie Polie Planet is powerful. In this rhyming bedtime adventure, Olie waits for a goodnight story from Pappy (grandpa), but Pappy turns up late and befuddled after a nasty bonk on the head. Olie saves the day by creating a sort of funny ray. (The adult but not the child will be irritated at the inconsistencies here: in one illustration Olie is filling a bucket with tricks and treats, and in the next this has inexplicably become a bubble-gun; equally inexplicably, it's described as a ray-gun.) "Then Olie burst into the room / and with his ray dispelled the gloom. 'I made a Pappy pick-me-up / to help old Pappy ungrow up.'" Shakespeare it isn't, but small kids are better than we are at empathizing with characters whose very souls seem to be made from Ping-Pong balls too. They love it! (Ages 3 to 5) --Richard Farr

Product Description

Rolie Polie evening--
Olie's almost sleeping.

His Rolie days
are without care,
especially when
Pappy's there.

But where is Pappy?
Where oh,
oh where?

Creative and Adorable  Apr 20, 2007
This book, Sleepy Time Olie is a great book because it gets kids' imaginations going wild. The illistrations are amazing! I love the adorable characters that seem to come to life with William Joyce's writing. In this book, Joyce writes when Olie's grandpa comes to visit Olie and his family at their house. But Olie's grandpa is is not feeling well.To chear him up, Olie and his sister, Zowie make a neat tool that shoots out bubbles! This really makes Olie's grandpa happy and creates a unique ending to the story. Again, I think this book is great and I reccomend it to any kid younger than 7 years old.
Rolie Olie is Spactolie  Apr 20, 2007
Sleepy Time Olie is a wonderful book. It has to do with Pappy feeling old and unhappy, so you know Olie has something up his sleeve. Olie creates a gadget that makes Pappy feel Happy and Olie gets to have him read to him before going to sleep. The setting is in my favorite place that they mention (The house) because a little child might get confused so it is easier for them to understand there is only one location. I loved this book and all of the other Rolie Polie Olie books because it fills me with joy and happiness. Even though I grew out of these books it makes me feel five again! I would recommend this book to anybody who loves the Rolie Polie Olie collection. Although William Joyce has better books, Rolie Polie Olie books are books that don't get dusty on the shelf. I still watch these episodes on Disney and laugh out loud.
different but so enticing!!  Nov 17, 2006
I absolutely enjoy the colors, the text, and how my daughter is pulled into this book as I read it to her. I wasn't impressed with the price but what can you do? Its quality is above Dora's & Caillou's books.
Frankly, at the beginning when we began watching the series on television, I didn't like the idea. When I saw how my daughter wanted mommy to keep the channel on, I left it, and I too now like it a great deal. While reading, you have to try and immitate how the characters speak on television to get into it as a reader (with Zowie my favorite)
I find Caillou books too wordy, while this series is cute with the words rolling off your tongue as a nice change.
Beautiful Illustrations and a fun read  Jul 25, 2006
My Son is 19 months old. The book is a bit wordy for him, so I have to read a bit quicker...but he enjoys it. He recognizes the characters, and points out all the objects. I'm sure in a few more months, he will ask to read it over and over again.
my daughter loves it  Aug 9, 2005
When we say Sleepy time Olie, my 16 month old daughter runs to her room and knows it's ready for bed time. she loves the pictures and story
