   Everyone who meets Olivia becomes an instant fan. She's a pig with wicked fashion sense and a mind of her own. She's outspoken, well-read, incredibly verbose, and headstrong.

   Olivia feels she's having an identity crisis. All the kids around her want to be princesses--for Halloween, in ballet class, in life--even some of the boys want to be princesses. Olivia wanted to be a princess, but that is so last year when she was "little." She asks her parents why everyone wants the same thing. Ever the free thinker, Olivia searches for something new to become.

   There are so many options! Olivia simply can't decide. She imagines herself as a nurse or a reporter. Until Olivia finally decides...why settle for being a princess when she could be ?????

 Beautifully rendered artwork by the author makes this reviewer green with envy over Falconer's talent. Each two page spread will have children captivated. Clever, amusing, and entertaining for kids of all ages. The artwork could stand alone without the print and tell the entire story. Isn't that what any great young reader book aspires to do?

   Olivia speaks to the little girl in each of us (yes, even some of the boys). 40 pages  Ages 3-7
