Olivia By: Ian Falconer

Olivia is precocious and high energy little pig.  "She is very good at wearing people out"  She has a little brother Ian who like any little sibling annoys her!  She reminds me a lot of my youngest daughter Emma.  She has to try on everything in her closet and loves being fancy, imagines herself being a ballerina, gets into trouble when she is supposed to be napping, and wears her mother out!  Olivia has a great imagination and her and her mother love each other very much!  The books illustrations are wonderful and include paintings from famous artists!  Girls will easily relate to this feisty character and the family dynamics.  There are many Olivia books if you enjoy this one and Olivia even stars in her own TV series on Nick Jr.

 Olivia even has her own website:

Happy precocious piglet reading!
