OLIVIA THE SPYIAN FALCONER Book Number: 85039 Product format: Hardback
Immortalised in children's literature, the pictures are marvellous and the verbal talents continue to grow as Olivia, the pig with style, tries to blend in. One afternoon Olivia was walking down the hall when she heard her mother talking to her aunt. 'I'm at the end of my tether. I just finished cleaning the kitchen when Olivia decided to make a smoothie. A blueberry smoothie.' 'Mommy, I KNOW how to use the blender.' The blue splattered walls in the shape of Olivia with her tall pointed ears and titchy little feet are one of the first superb illustrations. With two to four lines of text per page, this big picture book sees Olivia dressing as a pirate, investigating and learning how to be sneaky, disguised as a lampshade, as a zebra half rug, learning the word INSTITUTION and finding herself in prison! There is a surprise visit to the ballet where even the dancers and the statues are in the shape of little piggy Olivia and her family. Oh yes, she takes to the stage! 'Well, Olivia, what have you learned about eavesdropping?' 'Partial truths and misinformation...' Ages five to eight, 8½" x 11" colourful quality very fun hardback.
