Radio host and author Paul A. Ibbetson's fictional version of Animal Farm with a conservative twist. The delightful tale of Oliver the Squirrel unfolds on this departure from the conservative political discussions found previously in Ibbetson's books.
Oliver's Tale is a thinker's piece and while written in the same spirit as George Orwell's Animal Farm it has its own unique social, political, and religious message to be discovered by readers. Surrounded by a colorful cast of animal characters, Oliver experiences a spiritual growth in his relationship with God as he becomes privy to the secret plan of the Gray Skunk, the most mesmerizing and dangerous foe the Cove has ever faced.
Following God's instructions, Oliver will be taken on an adventure in both the forest and city to save not only himself, but all that he holds dear. Oliver's Tale is the story of how one very average squirrel became a servant of God and led a revolution to save the animals of Three Fingers Cove.This audiobook has several twists, including the "special power" of the book's adversary, the Gray Skunk, as well as his ability to control the most dangerous animals of the forest. Readers will be uplifted by this book as they will identify with Oliver's challenges, struggles, and victories as they mirror the daily challenges of life despite taking place in a fantasy world. Because Oliver is a cute little squirrel and such a likeable character, his feats of courage throughout the story become even more amazing.

The end when God gave Oliver the courage and strength to overcome the evil.
What about Sarah Pavelec’s performance did you like?
Sarah Pavelec, the narrator, has a voice that is easy to listen to and I enjoyed the unique voices she gave to each of the many characters. I was so impressed with how she could keep each voice sounding the same from the beginning of the story to the end.
