Olivia helps with Christmas
Ian Falconer
Easy Picture Book FALCONE

Comments  Summary  Reviews  Author Notes

From Publishers' Weekly:

More a succession of family anecdotes-in-the-making than a plot-driven story, the holiday installment of a much-loved series finds the adroitly accessorized piglet and her family decking the halls of a house in the country on Christmas Eve. Olivia, charged with "a very special job" (Mom-speak for interrupting the "Santa watch" Olivia and her younger brothers mount by the rain-streaked picture window), proudly shows off the table she has set by herself, topped with a decorated miniature tree: "Why, that's beautiful, darling. Where did you ever find that perfect little..." her mother beams; open the gatefold to see the rest of the room, where a saw and a stool stand next to the family's (decapitated) "...tree?" as the mother falteringly completes the question. Readers will claim other episodes as their own favorites; as usual, Falconer knows how to play pictures and text off each other to maximum comic impact. Ages 3-7. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
