My 10 yr old picked this one to give to his 2 yr old sister for Christmas. She loves it. So do we. The book size is perfect for little hands. It's technically a cushioned - hard cover book. We love it!

olivia steals the show - again
How can you not love Olivia? This perky, playful little porker is always up to some sort of smile provoking mischief. And often her doings also hold a lesson for young readers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
It's that time of year again at Olivia's school - time for the annual school play. Never one to under estimate her abilities Olivia is quite certain she will be given the leading role in The Fairy Queen. However, much to Olivia's distress Francine is given the role of the Fairy Queen and, oh, dear, Olivia is to be Cow Number Two. It's quite one thing to be cast as a cow but to make matter worse she has no speaking lines - all the audience will hear from Olivia is one "Moo."
Olivia is pretty downcast until her father reminds her, "Well, just remember: it's not what you say; it's how you say it."
Youngsters will enjoy the emphasis, intonations and drama Olivia is able to bring to the one syllable "Moo," and also be happily surprised to learn what Olivia comes up with to almost steal the show.
