Review Text

"Thank God for Ian Falconer and his Olivia. She is the popular school-age pig, the latest in a lien of independent, high-spirited young ladies that goes back at least to Madeline and Eloise, and also includes Frances the badger and Lilly the mouse. Her seventh full-fledged adventure, "Olivia and the Fairy Princesses," is, to my taste, her best since her introduction 12 years ago." The New York Times Book Review, August 2012

Review quote

"I approach sequels cautiously--they frequently don't measure up to the original. Happily, this one doesn't disappoint.... Falconer's droll humor is evident in both words and pictures...pure Olivia."--The Plain Dealer
