BUY – Olivia
Precocious, dramatic and full of life. Olivia is a talented little pig who is always on the go!
In this first of the ‘Olivia’ stories we discover her family, pets, where she lives and what she likes to do.
Olivia is one uptown piglet!
This story reflects the contemporary lifestyle of a young child in a big city full of culture and her response to it. This series encourages bright little minds to explore their imagination and creativity.
A visit to a gallery inspires Olivia’s representation of modern art. A wall at home becomes the perfect canvas which for some reason does inspire applause.
Nothing it seems is too difficult for Olivia. At the beach she quickly masters the art of making sandcastles and getting very sunburnt.
Exhausting is another word for Olivia. She’s the kind of piglet who must try on an array of outfits before she goes out! Her patient mother is somehow always full of love.
These delightful clean illustrations, playfully explore both her creative antics and funny everyday situations which kids will enjoy. Olivia and family are refreshingly drawn like real pigs which adds to the poise and drama of the pictures.
The Olivia books have also been adapted into a popular TV show for children.
It’s ALL about Olivia. This book may appeal more to girls and shows some egocentric behaviors which reflect certain personality types more than others. Common sibling dynamics are played out between Olivia and her little brother Ian, along with other everyday situations common to children’s social development.
A delightful light-hearted romp!
