From Barnes & NobleIan Falconer's popular piglet makes a hilarious comeback in her third picture book -- a mystery to end all mysteries! After cajoling her mom into sewing a distinctive red shirt for the soccer team (Never mind that everyone else’s jersey is green!), the little trendsetter heads outside to play. But when she returns, she realizes that her "best toy" is missing. In highest dudgeon, Olivia launches a massive manhunt (make that pighunt) -- checking under the rug, under the sofa, even under the cat, and giving little brothers Ian and William the third degree. But the mystery remains unsolved until that dark and stormy night when an awful sound interrupts her piano practice. Holding a candelabra that casts spooky shadows on the wall, the plucky little piglet investigates -- and discovers the real culprit behind a closed door.
With Falconer’s trademark black, white, and red line illustrations and a storyline that underlines Olivia’s appealing can-do attitude, this new installment in the winning series is swine-tastically superb. Eat your heart out, Sherlock.
