Reviews - What do customers think about Olivia Saves the Circus?

Cute, but not my favorite Olivia tale  Apr 21, 2007
The first two pages are the best in "Olivia Saves the Circus." That aside, the basic story is that Olivia, during show-and-tell, "embellishes" her trip to the circus. The drawings are fabulous as usual, but the plotline is a little dry. Still, my daughter loves it because it does capture the spirit of Olivia, though the story is very one-dimensional compared to the other Olivia books. And check out Olivia's "Remember the Maine" tatoo - it's a hoot!
My dad and I love this book!  Apr 20, 2007
The illustrations are very vivid. Ian Falconer can really think like a kid. A lot of times authors do that but its a little much.
Great Book  Mar 29, 2007
My daughter and I love reading Olivia books. The stories and the illustrations are great and very funny.
Worthless  Mar 11, 2007
This book, as the other Olivia books, is witty and creative. Unfortunately, the book is rendered worthless and inappropriate by the poor content. Olivia lies. Yes, all children enjoy fantasy, but when she's directly asked for the truth, she lies. Again, most kids will try that at least once. But for Olivia, there are no consequenses. What an awful message for children.
It gets worse. She shows a very negative attitude about her "boring uniform" that she has to wear to school. What a brat. And at the end she intentionally defies her mother, and of course, no consequenses. Blech. It's worthless, which is too bad because this author definately has talent.
Not as good as hoped  Jan 15, 2007
LOVED Olivia and the Missing Toy, wished I'd read Olivia Saves the Circus in a bookstore because I wouldn't have bought it. Very disappointed.
