Description

Everyone's favorite Caldecott honor-winning porcine and #1 Kris Cringle enthusiast is helping to make the season brighter than ever.

Christmas is coming, and Olivia is incredibly busy. She has to wait for Santa, make sure dad sets up the tree, wait for Santa, watch mom make the Christmas dinner, wait for Santa, oversee the care with which the stockings are hung and, of course, OPEN HER PRESENTS! Do you see how hard it is to be so helpful during the holidays?

A lovingly-told and lavishly-illustrated Olivia Helps With Christmas is the perfect stuffing for any stocking, and a bright star atop the Olivia series. Now available as an eBook with audio!

Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 22, 2007 – More a succession of family anecdotes-in-the-making than a plot-driven story, the holiday installment of a much-loved series finds the adroitly accessorized piglet and her family decking the halls of a house in the country on Christmas Eve. Olivia, charged with “a very special job” (Mom-speak for interrupting the “Santa watch” Olivia and her younger brothers mount by the rain-streaked picture window), proudly shows off the table she has set by herself, topped with a decorated miniature tree: “Why, that's beautiful, darling. Where did you ever find that perfect little…” her mother beams; open the gatefold to see the rest of the room, where a saw and a stool stand next to the family's (decapitated) “…tree?” as the mother falteringly completes the question. Readers will claim other episodes as their own favorites; as usual, Falconer knows how to play pictures and text off each other to maximum comic impact. Ages 3-7.

Customer Reviews

Sample was not even a page...

The sample only had the cover. No example of what the book is like. It may be a great book, but you won't get a clue from the sample.

Sample's great!

Just downloaded the sample... maybe it was corrected but there are now several pages. I love the narration by Dame Edna!

Great book

This is such a great book, my son really loved it and wants to read it over and over again
