This little pig is great! What a fun story to read with your little ones!
Olivia reminds me of someone I know, oh yeah! My daughter! Apr 16, 2008
Great Book!!!! As a parent that reads ALOT to her two kids, I need books that will entertain me as well as them- and this is one of those books! The story is funny and the illustrations are wonderful!
Excellent product Mar 26, 2008
This book is an excellent addition to any child's library. The board book edition holds up better to little ones who still chew on their books.
hilarious Feb 22, 2008
This book makes me chuckle when I'm reading it to my daughter. She's not sure why I think the illustration on the sand castle page with "she got pretty good" is so hilarious--- but it'll slay you if you're a grown-up. These books are really really witty. you hear this a lot- but they're great for kids AND grown-ups!
deft but not transcendent Feb 11, 2008
Visually playful, with arresting illustration and some fun page layout. Olivia's a spirited character for toddler girls--inquisitive, physical, testing limits. But after a few weeks of heavy rotation in our home months ago, we haven't returned to it much. One reason why: the only drama it has is family drama, not larger social drama. It doesn't give much of a picture of how the mysterious wider world works. No other characters have weight besides Olivia. Not enough story in the book to make it a must-have, even for NYC kids like mine.
