In this picture book starring the world’s most imaginative pig, Olivia embarks upon a quest for identity with very lofty goals—and being a princess is NOT one of them!
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! She wants to do more than just fit in! So what will she be? Join Olivia on a hilarious quest for individuality, and rest assured, you won’t find THIS pig pleased to be in pink!
In our house, we love Olivia, and this is a solid addition to the Olivia series! My daughter’s favorite thing about this book is perusing all the different princess costumes from different time periods and around the world. To be honest, it doesn’t get pulled off the shelf nearly as often as the original Olivia book, but that’s setting a high bar for comparison.
