Olivia . . . and the Missing Toy Paperback
by Ian Falconer
Olivia has one toy that she loves more than anything.
She feeds him, dresses him and takes him everywhere.
So when he disappears, Olivia is FURIOUS! She looks under the rug, under the sofa, under the cat.
She shouts at Ian and baby William, she cries, she stomps... all to no avail. Then, one dark and stormy night, Olivia hears a noise...
Clutching a candelabra, she creeps bravely into her bedroom, and sees a huge menacing shadow on the wall.
Who is this monster, and what's that hanging from his jaws?
All is resolved peacefully in this entertaining story starring our favourite pig and her favourite toy.

Review by crashingwaves38
As always, I love the Olivia books. My daughter loves being pulled along on Olivia's exploits. And, at the end of the day, Olivia deals well with having lost her best toy--she's stitched him back together, and she still loves the one who destroyed him. Excellent book.
Review by Iacobus
The best of the Olivia books (to date). Mystery, irony, humour, and some of the wonderful cultural asides Falconer inserts here and there. The opening sequence (Olivia exploring the pyramids on camel, and what happens next) is delicious in itself.
