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's desire to not be like everyone else is just the tale I want my toddler reading. Love it!

Olivia, the stubborn and funny pig, is back in another adorable children’s book. This time, Olivia is tired of everyone wanting to be a fairy princess, even some of the boys. At birthday parties, the school dance recital, and even Halloween, all anyone wants to be is a Fairy Princess. But Olivia wants to stand out and be unique in her own way. As Olivia goes through a list of all the different things she could be, she finally decides something that tops them all. Illustrated in captivating black and white drawings highlighted with few colors, make Olivia’s decision to be her unique self even more poignant. And the message that being different is okay creates a great moral well told through another impressive Olivia book. Recommended for readers age 3-7.
