A story about the everyday life of Olivia and her family They are a charming family of pigs, who do lovely things like go to the seaside, visit art galleries, and bargain about how many books Olivia can carry off to bed at night I loved the illustrations often with multiple versions of Olivia pirouetting very prettily across the pages The accompanying words were heart warming and funny and an equal pleasure.I read this via Open Library, just before going to bed.truly the perfec A story about the everyday life of Olivia and her family They are a charming family of pigs, who do lovely things like go to the seaside, visit art galleries, and bargain about how many books Olivia can carry off to bed at night I loved the illustrations often with multiple versions of Olivia pirouetting very prettily across the pages The accompanying words were heart warming and funny and an equal pleasure.I read this via Open Library, just before going to bed.truly the perfect bedtime story We went through a long Olivia phase here at the Weeks household Sweet and slyly witty, with a dash of haute couture, and a lot of well loved but misbehaving child, these books are just great Take note that I think Ian Falconer sold off the rights to this series There are several by him, and then a bunch by Nickelodeon or something My review only holds for the originals by Ian Falconer. Our Olivia was kind enough to share this book with me an introduce me to this lovely character I enjoyed it immensely and fell in love with the little piglet I never paid any attention to picture books but from now on, I will, because it seems like I missed out. I spent about a year in an awkward situation that started out with accidentally babysitting two adorable little kids Bundles of joy are those two, and I m not even being ironical Mommies and daddies, when you ask nice single gals of even age with yourselves if they ll do you a favor and watch your kiddos while you go wine tasting for a night, do you usually mean, Will you be my nanny I hope not It is very uncomfortable to get out of that kind of situation Anyway, Olivia was an invaluable I spent about a year in an awkward situation that started out with accidentally babysitting two adorable

while you go wine tasting for a night, do you usually mean, Will you be my nanny I hope not It is very uncomfortable to get out of that kind of situation Anyway, Olivia was an invaluable friend during that year.Last Christmas, I went shopping with the grandma of the kids, who we ll call Mima Mima told me that she had been Christmas shopping that day with the girl, and they had come across something that made the girl exclaim, Mima, that s Miss Meri s favorite This family requires Miss and Mr before any adult names, which I personally find really creepy Most kids I know call me Mers pronounced Meh rs not M er s When I told the girl she could call me Mers, she replied, with some attitude, Why would I call you Mers That s not your real name I had to shamefully admit she was right, and we compromised with Miss Meri Back to the story Mima suggested they buy this favorite thing for me as a Christmas present, and the girl agreed When Mima told me about the present, I spent some time trying to guess what it could possibly be and hoping it wasn t a princess dress, but I m a bad guesser Unfortunately for surprises, when I was dropping Mima off that night, I helped her carry in a bag of presents As I was setting it down, it fell open, and seeing what was inside I involuntarily exclaimed, Hey That s my favorwait a second Yes, as you may have guessed, it was a stuffed Olivia doll She s wearing her Christmas outfit, which is pretty spectacular Olivia is my favorite, it turns out I think it s because she s good at lots of things When I heard about the popularity of Olivia, I

Perry and a cat named Edwin that she lives with Olivia loves going to the beach and building sand castles and she loves going to museums and imagining herself as a ballerina dancing on stage After Olivia has a day of strenuous activities, she goes off to bed, dreaming of doingthings.Wow This book is so amazing I always wanted to know about the hype that Olivia had received over the years and now I know why this book was so popular Ian Falconer has done a brilliant job at both illustrating and writing this story about a young piglet who shows the audience about what it truly means to be hyperactive I loved the way that Ian Falconer based this book on his real family life as he actually has an older sister named Olivia who loved doing many things and he is the younger brother in this book, which made this book extremely memorable I also loved the way that Ian Falconer made Olivia into your average energetic child who loves trying out new things, even though her parents do get tired out by such an energetic child Ian Falconer s illustrations are extremely beautiful and creative as the illustrations are mainly in black and white colors, except for Olivia s clothes, which are always shown in red colors and that makes Olivia truly stand out from all the other characters I also loved the images of the paintings that Olivia sees in the museum as they are real paintings from the museum and the image I thought was the most breathtaking in this book was the image of Olivia imagining herself as a ballerina Overall, Olivia is a truly beautiful book about children just having fun in their lives I would recommend this book to children ages four and up since there is nothing inappropriate in this book.Review is also on Rabbit Ears Book Blog
