This is a lovely childrens book. I personally love the end when the mother tell Olivia that she makes her so tired but she loves her so much. Reminds me of my kids.

Glad to see a wonderful new book to add to my list of favorite children's books. Just the right combination of naughty and endearing, Olivia will win your heart. A "new" classic. The illustrations are phenomenal.
