Olivia goes to Venice
Publisher: Simon & Schuster Childrens Books
We join Olivia and her family again for another adventure and this time they are off to Italy. The story follows Olivia as she gets ready for her holiday, flies on a plane, gets searched at the airport and explores Venice. But she encounters trouble as she tries to find the perfect souvenir...
The story is filled with humorous moments that ring true of every family holiday and will amuse adults and children alike.
Ian Falconer's illustrations take a slightly different form for this book as his loveable characters are integrated well with photographic backdrops of Venice. Children are able to find out about the landmarks and culture of Venice without even realising they are learning.
