Besides this being my daughter's name, Olivia the pig is the funniest, sassiest, little pig around. The entire series of Olivia books are fun to read. Falconer's color scheme and inclusion of other pieces of modern and classic art within his pictures is brilliant. I especially love Olivia's fashion shows, and my younger daughter loves to belt out all of the exclamatory dialogue in the books. --Christina
