When Mr. Snuggles mysteriously reappears, Olive couldn't be more excited. They are back on track to being best friends forever. Except, something doesn't feel quite right.

With charming illustrations that draw out the heart and humor of Olive's complicated relationship with the new Mr. Snuggles, The Imposter is sure to become a favorite bedtime or storytime read.
Author BioLaura Bower lives in Westchester, New York with her husband, three kids and their loveys Puppy, Petunia and Nedburt, who have gone missing thousands of times over the years (most often right at bedtime). They have dealt with their fair share of imposters, but have figured out how to keep it real and all get along! When not reading or writing, Laura loves traveling to new places, live theatre, walking her dog Clover, and starting her morning with a strong cup of tea (necessary for the late night lovey searches). THE IMPOSTER is her debut picture book. Learn more about her at www.laurabowerauthor.com.
