livia's father has just made a model house to show a new client. If she likes it perhaps the lady will have him build the house for her. When father goes to pick up the client at the airport, he asks Olivia to watch the model and make sure nothing happens to it.
livia is happy to help and keep the model safe but, unfortunately, the household pet has other ideas. When Perry the dog destroys the model when he runs over it, Olivia is faced with a terrible dilemma. Will her father lose the job because the model is trashed?
o way! The clever little pig comes up with a special plan to save the day and help her dad close the deal. Beginning readers will love this story that has all the ingredients of a good plot and, of course, the characters are very familiar.
hat's not to like about Olivia? The indomitable white pig in her red tights has become a TV icon for the younger set!
