Barrett Booknotes: This Little Piggy Hits Home

Welcome to Barrett Booknotes, a blog from Darien’s independent bookstore. Find out why we’re “The Working Bookstore for the Reading Class."

Peals of laughter from my co-workers greeted me today when I came into work – everyone was poring over the newest Olivia book, Olivia and the Fairy Princess.

Featuring everyone’s favorite precocious pig, this book opens with Olivia in the middle of an identity crisis revolving around her oft-expressed need of standing out in the crowd.

Olivia has always wanted to be a fairy princess, but everyone wants to be a fairy princess lately. As usual, Olivia has some creative ideas about how to show off her unique style.  Why not dress like a princess from India, Thailand or Africa?  No more ballet, either. Now Olivia is striking out covered in black, Martha-Graham style. Olivia also dreams up different hilarious career options available to her other than royalty.

I loved this newest Olivia book – it’s my favorite of the series! This little piggy is definitely one of a kind.
