2008 Award
Olivia Helps With Christmas
(by Ian Falconer, Atheneum $18.99 Score:) Saucy as ever and full of holiday spirit, Olivia takes a few too many things into her own porcine hooves.

With fold out gates and lots of humor, this is sure to please the grown-ups who will surely be asked to read it again and again. 4-8.
