Everyone's favorite pig is back. As with all of the Olivia series, the wonderfully simple and expressive illustrations set the tone for this outstanding book. This time around, the precocious piglet forms her own band, tries on her mother's makeup, and excitedly waits for a grand fireworks display. Along for the ride are her family members, who do their best to keep up with Olivia's wandering imagination. With its true-to-life characters and offbeat humor, this installment will captivate and amuse children and parents, too.
