Olivia and the Fairy Princesses by Ian Falconer

I have been a big fan of Olivia since I first read the original book to a group of kindergarten students about a decade ago. Olivia may be exasperating to her mother, but I love her independent nature, originality and self confidence. She is a strong role model for young girls. Olivia’s adventures in this latest installment highlight all of those character traits.

In recent years, I’ve noticed a series of Olivia books based on the popular Saturday morning TV show. While I appreciate these books for early readers, I have missed Falconer’s original artwork. I was very happy to see it in this new book. I also love the addition of pink into the illustrations. I know Olivia would be disappointed in me, but I do love pink.

I like the Olivia books so much I named my newest hedgehog Olivia.

Other books about Olivia include:


Olivia Saves the Circus

Olivia Forms A Band

Olivia and the Missing toy

Olivia Helps With Christmas
