Olivia is a feisty piglet who's got too much energy for her own good. Whether she's singing or building a skyscraper out of sand or trying on all her clothes or getting rid of her little brother or decorating the living room walls or asking for too many books at bedtime, she never gets worn out. Of course, it's another story entirely for Olivia's exhausted mother! Young listeners will delight in Olivia's antics as they recognize themselves... and adults will sympathize with her mother's (almost) limitless patience and love.
