Everyone’s favourite pig is back for a new adventure. This time she takes on Venice… Olivia loves everything about Venice – especially the ice creams or gelato. But, what will Venice feel about Olivia by the time she leaves? The glorious back-drop of Venice is shown through photographs while Olivia and her family enjoy the sites.


Olivia Goes to Venice by Ian Falconer

In her latest adventure, Olivia, everyone's favourite little pig, is off the Venice, the place of fine art, carnival and gondolas for a family holiday to remember. With her very own discerning eye for style, Olivia takes the beautiful city of Venice by storm. From dodging pigeons in the Piazza San Marco, to eating an abundance of the most delicious Italian gelato at Carneval, and barely staying afloat in a gondola, Olivia uncovers the wonderful delights of Venice with that very special 'Olivia' style and flair!


* The irrepressible Olivia is back. . . . This comic sequel is as delightful as its predecessors. -- Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW
