Product Description

Everyone’s favorite pig is about to have a birthday…but will her penchant for eavesdropping lead to more than presents?

Olivia’s birthday is days away. Plans must be made. Who makes plans? Moms! Who simply must know the plans? Olivia, who is NOT above eavesdropping. But when she not-so-accidentally-but-kinda overhears her mom talking about her not-so-squeaky-clean-and-possibly-very-bad-behavior, Olivia’s imagination runs wild…because it sounds like not only will there be no birthday, but Mom might just be sending her to military school instead. What a BAD birthday that would be!

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2—Olivia, the long-eared, precocious pig in striped pajamas, decides to become a spy in order to hear her mother''s many complaints about her behavior. Unfortunately, she misunderstands a half-overheard conversation and lets her imagination get the best of her, convincing herself that her parents intend to send her to prison. With a trembling lip, Olivia prepares for the worst, only to find herself at the ballet (a different sort of "institution," it seems). Falconer''s trademark style is in full form. After more than 10 books, this spunky, spirited pig and her antics strike a familiar note with children and adults alike. The pages are deliberately spare, with explosive pops of teal, orange, red, and pink. The details are full of whimsy, especially Olivia''s brilliant and amusing camouflage strategies. Falconer returns to his unique artistic technique, adding superimposed photos of classic architecture and artwork. VERDICT Young and old fans of Olivia, as well as those new to her antics, will adore this cautionary tale about eavesdropping. Perfect for one-on-one and small group sharing.—Clara Hendricks, Cambridge Public Library, MA

This story was awful. Which is surprising because we like the original Olivia so much. The parents are not kind and Olivia is not a spy so much an anxious + scared little girl (pig) who has overheard + misunderstood some not nice grown up conversations about her. Her mom also calls the bathroom the “you know what” as if asking your child if they need to use the BATHROOM is just too much for a child’s ears, but it’s ok to say cruel things about them within earshot. It’s ridiculous and this book was just not appropriate for any child I care about.

Olivia books are great!
Reviewed in the United States on September 3, 2021
I''m a fan of all the Olivia books. This one is a fun read and teaches the lesson that eavesdropping probably isn''t the best idea. I think the Olivia books were probably written more for girls, but my boys love them just the same.

Olivia goes to prison, er, the ballet.
Reviewed in the United States on August 27, 2020
Sophisticated humor appealing to children and adults. This is more metropolitan (NYC?) oriented, showing taxi cab, the ballet, skyscrapers. Highly recommend.
