Review

The fabulously fussy Olivia is on the go again, this time to Venice. While in Venice, Olivia sees the sights. She visits the Grand Canal and the Piazza San Marco, goes on a gondola ride, and consumes an inordinate amount of gelato. Olivia also manages to leave her mark while attempting to find a suitable souvenir to take back home. Always delightful, spunky and opinionated Olivia is a good way to introduce the younger ones to the attractions of Venice. The wacky illustrations are familiar but still entertaining, and the disarming humor can be appreciated by all ages. The infamous Olivia is an excellent story-time book for any library story hour. Highly Recommended. Ariel Foshay Bacon, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
