Book review: 'Olivia the Spy,' preschoolers learn about the dangers of eavesdropping in adorable tale

Parents need to know that Ian Falconer's "Olivia the Spy" is another winner in the picture book series starring an adorable pig who often appears in a red-and-white striped onesie and tends to get into typical kid trouble. This time, after making a few mistakes around the house, she hears her mom complaining about her on the phone and spies on her parents to hear more. Ultimately, she hears a part of a conversation that leads her to believe she's being sent to prison (her mom's actually taking her to the ballet as a surprise). It's a funny misunderstanding cleverly laid out, with a lesson not only for eavesdropping kids but also for complaining parents.
