Olivia Forms a Band

by

Olivia Forms a Band Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ian Falconer's original intention for Olivia was as a little Christmas present for his niece of the same name. The real Olivia is an extremely headstrong, imaginative child who, even at the age of three, could argue through any inconvenience to achieve her goal. At any rate, the drawings and the character became better and better. A couple of years later, Simon and Schuster caught onto Falconer's work and Olivia captured their hearts too.

Synopsis:

A paper-over-board edition of the much adored Olivia Forms a Band.

Synopsis:

Everyone's favorite Caldecott Honor-winning porcine diva is back and with fanfare There are going to be fireworks tonight, and Olivia can hardly wait to hear the band. But when she finds out that there isn't going to be a band, she can't understand why not. How can there be fireworks without a band? And so Olivia sets to putting a band together herself...all by herself. Using pots, pans, her brother's toys, and even her father's suspenders, Olivia forms a band spectacular enough to startle any audience. Lavishly brought to life in Ian Falconer's signature style, and introducing an eye-catching shade of blue, here is Olivia doing what Olivia does best — making noise.
