Olivia Plans a Tea Party - Natalie Shaw

Released May 2011

Simon and Schuster

Reviewed by Bob Walch

In this latest addition to the series, Olivia’s mother is ailing so she decides
to help out with Mom’s Party Planning business. A frantic call from Mrs.
Berkshire requesting help with her garden club tea, Olivia, Ian and Francine
set to work making sandwiches and collecting tea things.

Everything seems to be well in hand until Ian takes another phone
call from a woman requesting a pirate theme party for her sons. Ian gets
confused and thinks its Mrs. Berkshire who wants a pirate tea party!

When the three little pigs, wearing pirate costumes, arrive at the garden
party with all their tea party gear and food, they get some strange looks from
the ladies. Things get really interesting, though, when Olivia tells her crew
to inflate the pirate ship bounce house. If that doesn’t get the party
jumping, nothing will!

A favorite with young readers, Olivia always manages to salvage even the
most embarrassing or difficult situation with aplomb and finesse. But in this
story the irascible little piglet really outdoes herself !
