Overview

Everyone's favorite Caldecott Honor-winning porcine diva is back and with fanfare! There are going to be fireworks tonight, and Olivia can hardly wait to hear the band. But when she finds out that there isn't going to be a band, she can't understand why not. How can there be fireworks without a band?! And so Olivia sets to putting a band together herself...all by herself. Using pots, pans, her brother's toys, and even her father's suspenders, Olivia forms a band spectacular enough to startle any audience. Lavishly brought to life in Ian Falconer's signature style, and introducing an eye-catching shade of blue, here is Olivia doing what Olivia does best -- making noise.

This book is a really good childrens book about when a little pig named Olivia starts a band. All small children will definetly like this book and grownups probably will too.

We have a four-year-old named Olivia, and it is like Ian was writing the books about her antics. She is SO much like this strong-willed little pig! We own the series, and are always anxious to see a new one come out. Adorable illustrations!

I love all of the Olivia books - oh, and so does my six year old son! This new one is a lot of fun. My husband thinks it's the best of the bunch. Enjoy!

I loved this book. This was my favorite Olivia book since the original. I laughed out loud while reading it. I can just imagine the sound of Olivia's 'band' as she practices. I can't wait to see what adventures she has in her next book.

Another excellent book by Ian Falconer. the drawings are, as usual, amazing. Olivia is such a fun, strong, determined and ingeniuos little pig! Nothing can stop her, and just when you think it's time to relax..she's already thinking about her next adventure.
