My daughter is absolutely obsessed with Olivia . She talks about her incessantly, references her all the time, and insists we read Olivia about 200 times a day.  And who can blame her? This little pig is pretty fabulous, and the perfect little storybook ‘hero’ for a 2-year-old girl. And I just love the adorable black charcoal illustrations with all the little touches of red!

There are a few Olivia books, but the original one is our favourite. It’s available from Amazon (US and UK ).

My kids are big fans of Olivia too. We had the audio CD in the car last summer and we listened to it so much I still know all the words by heart!

I remember coming across Olivia years ago at Barnes and Noble in the USA and it immediately became a firm favourite in our home too!

I really love Olivia the pig, too. I like the “original style” of the first book, too, and this is written that way: http://www.amazon.com/Olivia-Helps-Christmas-Ian-Falconer/dp/1416907866
The best thing about that story is the LITTLE tree that Olivia put out, her mother loves it until she realizes that Olivia chopped off the top of their family Christmas tree!!!
