Comments for Olivia... And the Missing Toy

Olivia... And the Missing ToyOlivia... And the Missing Toy: 01/02/08

Olivia ... and the Missing Toy is the third story that I've read to Sean and Harriet. The series by Ian Falconer continues to delight all of us.

In this story, Olivia is missing her favorite toy. She searches everywhere: under the rug, the sofa, the cat and so forth. She tries interrogating her brothers; it doesn't work.

In the end she finds the toy but finding it brings heart-break. Olivia, though, in her usual way, bounces back and the book ends on a happy note.

I love Olivia, or better we all love her in our home. But we have only read what was the first installment of the series, the rest haven't been published here in Greece."
