Descrizione

Funny, true and ingenious, Olivia's legions of fans will not be disappointed with this new story of the funky little pig and her fierce attachment to her favorite toy.

Olivia has one toy that she loves more than anything: a stuffed animal that she feeds and dresses and takes everywhere. And when he disappears, Olivia is furious! She shouts at Ian and baby William, but they plead innocence. She screams, she cries, she stomps, but is left without her toy and is heartbroken.

Then, one dark and stormy night, Olivia hears a noise! Candelabra in hand, she bravely creeps into her bedroom to face a huge menacing shadow on the wall, a piece of her beloved toy in its jaws!

A Simon & Schuster audio production.

    Hyperactive porcine wonder Olivia returns in this third picture-book devoted to her hilarious adventures, following upon the Caldecott Honor-winning Olivia, and the fun follow-up, Olivia Saves the Circus. Here Olivia finds that her favorite toy has gone missing, and in a film-noir setting, she explores the mystery. The solution - the family dog Perry has eaten her beloved plaything - proves rather mundane, but Olivia is capable of making a drama of anything. Fortunately, she's also capable of forgiveness...Like its predecessors, I found Olivia and the Missing Toy absolutely hilarious! Ian Falconer has a real gift for capturing the simultaneously stubborn and sweet quality of his little piglet heroine, as well as the sometimes appalled, but always loving reactions of her very patient mother. The artwork, done in charcoal and gouache, captures all the little humorous details in the story, as well as adding some of its own. I particularly appreciated the use of a darker background, and a strategically placed candelabra, in the 'film noir' mystery sequence. All in all, another winner in this wonderful picture-book series! Recommended to anyone who has read and enjoyed the other Olivia books, or who is looking for children's stories featuring imaginative and somewhat madcap little girls.

    This spunky little pig named Olivia and is trying to solve the mystery of her missing toy. Olivia's strong personality comes out in a comical way, while she on the case. The Olivia books are a cute collection to include in a classroom library because kids adore her!

    This is a very cute book! This book can teach children that even though something may not go your way, or you may not like it, you can fix it to be your way. Olivia did not like the jersey, so she had her mother make a new one, different from the team's. Olivia's dog chewed her favorite toy, so she sewed it up and fixed it just right again. And even though her dog chewed her favorite toy to bits, at the end of the day, she forgave him and let him sleep by her side, fixing it to be her, way the better and more caring way.

    Olivia loses her favorite toy and spends a lot of time searching for it. She later discovers that the dog has eaten her favorite toy.

    At first glance, the cover of this book makes it look quite scary. There is a picture of "Olivia" looking frightened, with lightening in teh background and holding a candle in the dark. Inside the book I found that the illustrations were quite repetative and simple. Also, I didn't like they way that Olivia acted when she lost her toy. She screamed at everyobe around her and was never repremanded in any way. I felt like this would encourage children who read it that the behaviour was acceptable.

    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.

    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.

    While not as good as the original Olivia, this one improves on Saves the Circus, capturing the nature of a child's efforts to cope with loss very well.

    Olivia has lost her toy! I love the Olivia books but this one is my least favorite. The plot was unorganized and bounced around never really solved anything. The pictures and the dialog between characters was cute as always.

    This book tells a story about a young girl who is unhappy with her blue soccer t-shirt. He mother ends up making her a new shirt to suit her better; red was her favorite color. She looses her favorite stuffed animal and becomes very unhappy. Her mother, again, tries to make things better and offers to buy her another one. When she discovers her dog has chewed up the toy, she fixes the problem but sewing it back together. Her mother taught her a valuable lesson about creating solutions for her problems.

    This book is part of a series about a young girl pig and her adventures through life. I enjoyed these a lot when I was younger and had fun re reading this one in particular. In this book, Olivia has lost her favorite toy, a stuffed animal. Olivia searches and searches for her toy and unfortunately finds it after her pet dog has chewed it up. Olivia is crushed, and despite the offer from her father for a new toy, she sow's up her toy and forgives the dog. The illustrations in these stories are what make it so great, mostly all of the book is in black and white except for Olivia's clothing and toys, which are usually red.

    This is a cute book to read to children because they can probably relate to it. Many children loose toys and pets may sometimes take them. As usual, Ian Falconer does a great job with the illustrations.

    This is a cute little Olivia story. Olivia’s best toy is missing. She’s tearing up the house looking for it, because she knows someone in her house moved it. Later, during a storm that night, Olivia hears a horrible sound coming from one of the rooms. So naturally, Olivia goes exploring. She finds her dog, Perry, ripping her best toy to pieces. Olivia is sad because this was her most favorite. But dad promises to replace it which makes her feel better. Soon, Olivia sews her toy back together and forgives the dog because he didn’t know any better. This reinforces the idea that children don’t need to dwell on the negative. They need to stay strong and move on. Details: This book was written to interest children in grades K-3 and is on a 3.6 reading level.

    This book was a great social story for a child who is going through a similar situation in which they lose their favorite toy. I remember when I was growing up I lost my first teddy bear and I was so emotional over it because I was so attached to it. Children at this age are very attached to inanimate objects, and this book is a great way to explain how sometimes things out of your control happen, but it’s going to be okay. The plot of the story helps readers to realize that in the end, everything will be all right and not to be upset over losing toys. Another engaging component were the illustrations and the color scheme. The only colors used throughout were black, white, grey, and red. The pictures were simple, yet eye catching, and would help readers to stay focused on what was happening throughout the story. The main message of the story was that it is okay to be upset when things are gone, but know that everything will always work out in the end.
