"The Love Song Of Oliver Toddle" : Suggeted Reading

READ IT HERE: "The Love Song Of Oliver Toddle"
BY: Catherine Schaff-Stump
IN: The Absent Willow Review

This is a lovely little love story. Oliver Toddle is a house gnome who lives and works in a mechanics garage, and he likes poetry. The guys in the shop know about his fondness for literature and borrow books from the library for him. One day, one of the guys leaves to start a new life, and a replacement comes. What develops then is a meeting of minds as it turns out that the replacement also likes poetry, not the soppy, sentimental kind, but the kind that expresses love but also looks into the soul. Through the poems they love, they begin to communicate.
