Hands down the best illustrations in any childrens book. We love Ian Falconer's Olivia books. This actual book "Olivia Forms a Band" was purchased when my daughter was 3 years old. She just turned 9 and its still one that makes the cut of books in rotation for her to read before bed.
Olivia is hilarious and her imagination is played out in these books. This one is her idea of forming a band on 4th of July. I love how most pages are simple illistrations using only minimal color. The black and white images are adorable and really pop with the touches of red.
Great book for children of all ages.
