Ian Falconer

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.  


Have you ever been woken up by a prodigious drum solo at 5:00am, or found yourself receiving cooking advice from a pint-sized gourmand? Do you have a little person in your life who reckons her sandcastle building abilities were vastly underutilised during your recent reno, or perhaps you have your very own cat-mover-remover?

If this is the case, then Olivia is the perfect book to share with the energetic and imaginative young person in your life. Olivia is a feisty piglet who lives with her parents and younger brother. She likes to dress up, sing songs, dance, think and snooze (sometimes).

Olivia is an enjoyable ‘just one more’ bedtime addition – a win-win for everyone. If your young reader can’t get enough of this charming world, they can also join Olivia on her exploits in Ian Falconer’s other picture books: Olivia Goes to Venice, Olivia the Spy and Olivia …and the Missing Toy.

Lose a little bit of your heart to one precocious piglet in this modern classic. Move over Peppa!
