bookshelves: fantasy-science-fiction

Most children dream of being in the circus; Olivia takes over the circus. When the performers fall ill, Olivia comes to the rescue: "Luckily I know how to do everything." She fills in for the ring master, the lion tamer, the tight-rope and trapeze artists, the clown and even the tattooed lady. I admire the swaggering swine heroine, who lives grandiose fantasies, that Ian Falconer has created in this and other Olivia stories.
It would be interesting for students to write their own Olivia adventures!
