Josh Crute has lost too many umbrellas to count. His first picture book, Oliver: The Second Largest Living Thing on Earth, contains no umbrellas, but it does contain an unhappy sequoia tree. If you find one of Josh’s umbrellas, please give it a good home or return it to his umbrella stand in Birmingham (Alabama, not England).
