Olivia is having an identity crisis! There are too many ruffly, sparkly princesses around these days, and Olivia has had quite enough. She needs to stand out! She has to be special! What will she be? Full color.
From the Publisher:
"Olivia is having an identity crisis! There are too many ruffly, sparkly princesses around these days, and Olivia has had quite enough. She needs to stand out! She has to be special! What will she be? Join Olivia on a hilarious quest for individuality inthis latest book of the OLIVIA series, and rest assured, you won't find THIS pig in pink!"--Provided by publisher.
Annotation:
While every girl around her, and some of the boys, longs to be a princess, Olivia doesn't want to be something so commonplace. Declaring an identity crisis, Olivia explores her options. Her biggest influence is Martha Graham, and soon she's sporting grey and making dance moves that are definitely not influenced by the fairy princess ballet style. Hilarious and clever, this smart story is accompanied by Ian Falconer's spare, yet expressive illustrations.

Praise

"In this latest, delightfully droll episode, readers find their precocious pig suffering from an identity crisis...Falconer's charcoal-and-gouache illustrations, black and white with splashes of color interspersed, showcase Olivia's unique spirit and dramatic flair." 07/01/2012

"Olivia stubbornly dresses in red-and-white-striped long johns, resists damsel-in-distress bedtime stories, and lies awake considering philanthropic lines of work. Lest this be seen as pure propaganda, however, Olivia's ultimate career decision places everything in perspective: 'I want to be queen.' Not all will be persuaded to join the pink princess backlash, but it's a start." (starred review) 06/04/2012
