Ian Falconer''s OLIVIA FORMS BAND plus CD for only $12.99
From the Publisher:
Olivia decides that a marching band must accompany the fireworks display so she forms one from pots, pans, her brother's toys, and her father's suspenders.
Annotation:
Olivia, the pluckiest little piglet in children's picture-book history, creates a stunning one-pig band out of a range of deeply amusing household items and toys. Upon discovering that the fireworks will be band-free, and stopping her family in their tracks at the mere mention a family ensemble, Olivia gets to work. Clad in spiffy, spotted pjs, she bribes her little brothers for a tiny keyboard and drum, and finds some pot lids for percussion. Still missing a key item, Olivia soldiers on, with humorous and charming results. With Ian Falconer's signature duo-tone color scheme in eye-piercing turquoise and cherry red, as well as some surprising and well-done pieces of photographic spot-art.

Praise

"Once more, Falconer's mastery of detail and pacing results in outlandish comedy...Another crowd-pleasing performance for the porcine starlet and her creator." 04/03/2006

"So consummately consistent are Falconer's characterizations and so perceptive are Olivia's constant fans, that every deft facial nuance will be met with squeals of approval for the most popular pig in America--and her long-suffering mother." 05/01/2006
