Because this is the best thing I have read in weeks:
We are fans of Olivia the Pig for obvious reasons. And the previous books are great…that smart kind of humor that is totally over the kid’s heads but still engages them.
But this latest one? Oh sweet rest for the Princess Weary.
Falconer’s sattire on the pink, princess, fairy obsession is unmatched.
Olivia does not want to be a princess, or at least not one in pink. WHY WHY does everyone else around her? She explores the alternatives and finally figures out her true vocational dream.I laughed out loud as my Olivia really didn’t get it at all. This one will connect the least with kids but should be on the bookshelf of any adult who has accidentally (or not accidentally) been caught vacuuming up tulle.
