Hey did you hear that the Olivia character is coming to TV tomorrow? I just heard over on my friend Jeanne Sager's blog and I must say, I'm weirdly excited. Something about the Olivia books really grabs me. I think it's the author/illustrator's humor and use of real artwork in the books. By real I mean "grown up" art from Pollack and Degas, among others. So check out the new Olivia series on Nickelodeon at 11:30am on Monday, January 26.
And just to make this post relevant to all the hyperlocal stuff I usually stick to, I must mention that Ian Falconer, the genius behind the Olivia series, lived in Rowayton as a kid. That's him above.
Pick up some Olivia books here.
