Olivia/ by Ian Falconer

Ian Falconer's OLIVIA  is an energetic, playful, energetic, imaginative, energetic, usually well behaved, energetic little girl pig who "is good at lots of things." I was especially impressed with her sand castle!  When she scares her little brother, Ian away because he "just won't leave her alone", I wondered if this might really be the story of the author's big sister.  Anyway, Olivia, like most children, is into many activities and uses her energy to the full extent.  She has so much energy, that her mother finds it hard to get her take a nap during the day. Its lots of fun but exhausting to this bouncing ball across the pages of her day.  Did I mention that she is very energetic?  By the end of the day, Olivia has worn out her poor parents but as a tradition in many families, Olivia's mother still finds the strength to read her a few books before bedtime and says, "You know, you really wear me out.  But I love you anyway."
