Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The porcine recipient of a 2001 Caldecott Honor Award makes her third appearance in a deliciously funny story that's sure to strike a chord in preschoolers everywhere. Olivia has one special toy that she adores — a stuffed animal that she dresses and puts lipstick on and takes everywhere. But one day it strangely... inexplicably... tragically!... vanishes. Who is the culprit? With all the suspense of a Daphne du Maurier novel, and all the humor of, well, Olivia herself, Ian Falconer's creation outdoes herself in a mystery/picture book sure to become as beloved as its predecessors.

Review:

"The line-master is back...in perfect form....The heightened atmosphere and melodrama suit Olivia just perfectly." Kirkus Reviews

Review:

"This book gets everything right; the story is simple yet compelling, and Falconer's art is as imaginative and inventive as ever." Booklist

Review:

"Though it hardly seems possible, Falconer's visual and verbal narrative talents continue to grow. And so will Olivia's devotees." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

Olivia has one toy that she loves more than anything. She feeds him, dresses him and takes him everywhere. So when he disappears, Olivia is FURIOUS!andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; She looks under the rug, under the sofa, under the cat. She shouts at Ian and baby William, she cries, she stomps...all to no avail. Then, one dark and stormy night, Olivia hears a noise...Clutching a candelabra, she creeps bravely into her bedroom, and sees a huge menacing shadow on the wall. Who is this monster, and what's that hanging from his jaws?andlt;BRandgt;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp;andnbsp; All is resolved peacefully in this entertaining story starring our favorite pig and her favorite toy.
