ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- She's back! That truly adorable headstrong piglet just happens to overhear (Olivia wouldn't really use the word 'eavesdropping') her father and mother discussing sending her to an institution for her birthday. Her imagination certainly runs wild, and she is convinced she is going to be sent away (the incident with the blueberry smoothie probably didn't help) and for a little while her spirits are low. But when she learns that the institution referred to is the ballet, our indefatigble heroine soon finds a way to be centre stage… Every bit as charming and delightful as the previous books. Lindy Jones


Everyone's favourite pig is about to have a surprise trip to the ballet! But when Olivia overhears her mother complaining about her recent naughty behaviour, her imagination runs wild and she decides to find out everything being said about her... until her eavesdropping leads her to believe she is being carted off to prison!
