Meet Kerisa Greene
Her playful style brings to life Olive, a girl who loves her Mr. Snuggles more than anything else in the world. But Olive is suddenly suspicious of the changes she sees when Mr. Snuggles is lost and then mysteriously reappears. He is a little too clean, a little too fluffy, and a little too ... new. He's an imposter!
With Kerisa on board, readers won't help but fall in love with Olive as she learns to make room for more than just one Mr. Snuggles in her life.
