Book Review by Bob Walch

Join Olivia in this Lift-the-Flap picture book as the precocious little pig practices her ice skating skills so she will be selected to skate with "Cinderella on Ice" star Sonya Spencer. 

Olivia creates an ice rink in her backyard so she can hone her skating skills and she also teaches her friend, Julian, how to skate. Things are going along quite well when disaster strikes. Sonia Spencer is ill and the ice show is cancelled.

At this point the creative little pig decides she’ll have her own ice show for the neighborhood and her friends can skate the various roles of her “Cinderella on Ice”. Of course, you know who will skate the lead role!

Naturally the show is a big hit and everyone applauds Olivia. In fact, the local paper even runs a story about the backyard ice show and you know whose photo is prominently featured.

Everyone loves Olivia and her indomitable “can do” spirit. This latest book is ideal for winter read aloud sessions and youngsters will have fun peeking behind the flaps to discover what is concealed there.
