    Critic Reviews

    "At last, a pig with self-esteem!" (Gloria Steinem)
    "Many dream of dancing on the stage, but Olivia has the legs for it." (Mikhail Baryshnikov)
    "Preschoolers (and their parents) will see themselves in Olivia--a typical high-energy, over-the-top kid who likes the beach and Degas paintings, but hates naps. On the other hand, she combs her ears and is unusually gifted at sandcastle building. While we are certainly reminded of Eloise, Falconer's portrait is simpler in scope, less demented, and, as a result, less adult. Bottom line: precocious is fun, and we're tickled pink to have Olivia join the parade of, let's just say, individualistic youngsters." (Amazon.com review)
