Olivia is an absolute delight! A gorgeous little pig who likes to dress-up, sing songs, dance, think, snooze (sometimes) and is even quite good at building sandcastles. Her days are filled with the wonderful minutia that makes up a small child's life and, at the end of them, when she snuggles up in bed and her mother reads her a story (or three) Olivia the little pig, feels very full of love. Olivia is an absolute gem of a book - a modern classic. About

Have fun with Olivia...

  • dressing up
  • singing songs
  • building sand castles
  • napping (maybe)
  • dancing
  • painting on walls
  • and -- whew! --
going to sleep at last.

We love it!


My daughter loves this book! I bought this book as the character brief sounded a little like my own daughter. And true to form, she loves it and giggles at the daily routines that Olivia does
