Exclusive Art from Ian Falconer's Olivia Forms a Band. Why wasn't this picture included in the book? Here's a look inside the creation of a blockbuster picture book. There were 60 images selected for Olivia Forms a Band out of over 70 pieces of art submitted by Olivia creator Ian Falconer. However, many people in-house at Simon & Schuster loved the picture and thought it was typical of a 5-year-old playing with her mother's lipstick. While there's a lot to love in this picture, Ian Falconer after all is the man behind Olivia.

FALCONER, Ian. Olivia Forms a Band.

FALCONER, Ian. New York: Anne Schwartz-Atheneum Books for Young Readers, (2006). Slim quarto, original pictorial white paper boards, patterned endpapers, original dust jacket. With perfectly nuanced dialogue and a mixture of comical and artful scenes, Falconer explores the logic, invention and humor emanating from a talented youngster, serious about the mission of the moment (School Library Journal).

Using pots, pans, her brother's toys, and even her father's suspenders, Olivia forms a band spectacular enough to startle any audience

Falconer adds a new color for this fourth offering in readers' long-standing love affair with the inimitable Olivia-and she still rules. The occasion is a family outing to a fireworks display.

Falconer adds a new color for this fourth offering in readers' long-standing love affair with the inimitable Olivia-and she still rules. Disappointed that there will be no band, Olivia decides to make her own. Deserted by her disobliging family, she spends the day hilariously rounding up all the instruments necessary to turn herself into a one-pig band. To Olivia, she sounded just like a real band. Cue the double-page fold-out in "Tempo marziale.

Everyone's favorite Caldecott Honor-winning porcine diva is back and with fanfare! There are going to be fireworks tonight, and Olivia can hardly wait to hear the band. But when she finds out that there isn't going to be a band, she can't understand why not. How can there be fireworks without a band?! And so Olivia sets to putting a band together herself...all by herself. Using pots, pans, her brother's toys, and even her father's suspenders, Olivia forms a band spectacular enough to startle any audience. Lavishly brought to life in Ian Falconer's signature style, and introducing an eye-catching shade of blue, here is Olivia doing what Olivia does best -- making noise.

Hands down the best illustrations in any childrens book. We love Ian Falconer's Olivia books. This actual book "Olivia Forms a Band" was purchased when my daughter was 3 years old. She just turned 9 and its still one that makes the cut of books in rotation for her to read before bed.

Olivia is hilarious and her imagination is played out in these books. This one is her idea of forming a band on 4th of July. I love how most pages are simple illistrations using only minimal color. The black and white images are adorable and really pop with the touches of red.

Great book for children of all ages.

I love the Olivia books for myself, even though I am 28. They are great comfort reading and the humor hits me just the right way!

This was the best so far, I think. I loved the introduction of photos into the book, in particular the use the photos when Olivia's mother asks her what kind of band she wants to form. The rock band rocking out that Olivia's mother has in mind just cracks me up, and the straight-laced marching band of Olivia's dreams balances it perfectly.

Little William is growing up and is shown actually having some personality now. I love the page where Olivia tells her family that they should all start a band, and you see them going from interested to, variously, slinking off, looking engaged in the newspaper and dishes, and very carefully looking at anything BUT Olivia.

The suspenders scene with her Dad is hilarious too, where she takes off his suspenders to use for her band, and his pants fall down, exposing his voluminous boxer shorts with red polka dots, identical to Olivia's PJ's with red polka dots. "Look, Daddy, we are twins!" and her enthused expression just cracks me up.

The scene with her looking in the mirror and grinning is both slightly creepy and really funny. I never envisioned Olivia with Hollywood, human teeth, so that was a little odd, but it certainly has the impact that Falconer desires - of putting us in the fantasy world of a child with lipstick on. Olivia thinks she looks quite the movie star!

All in all, this book meanders in enough directions to make some wonderful jokes, but keeps to the main theme well too. The illustrations have a ton of funny moments and I loved the jokes and the way pictures were included.

I know a lot of parents dislike the final joke of the book, where Olivia is dreaming and imagines herself in the Supreme Court, because it isn't a joke aimed at children. As an adult who enjoys the books, that ending cracks me up every time, and I think kids might be fascinated by that bit because it probably makes their parents laugh. I remember as a child having a few books that went over my head for the jokes occasionally, and those books often became ones which meant the most to me in later life, because when I reread them as a teen, I finally got what my parents were snickering about, and I could enjoy them on many levels.

Anyway, five stars for his one. I've read and reread it many times and the appeal hasn't faded for me yet. Olivia is just too funny!

I'm not sure how we missed Olivia but we recently discovered the Christmas book and then Olivia, the original book, and we've kept going. The original book is the best. This book has some great pages and the scenes of her putting on lipstick were deadly funny. My 3.5 year old daughter and I were rolling on the bed just looking at those two pages! Ian Falconer's humor and ability to write the tone and convey so much in his sketches is truly admirable.

But I found the overall plot line a bit less compelling in this one. The climax to making the band sort of deflates when she ends up not taking the band to the picnic and fireworks. Yes, it's funny at the end when Mom stumbles across all the instruments but it was a little less fulfilling in general.

Falconer is also brilliant, I will say, about just making Olivia a strong, strong girl. I love the dream image at the end where Olivia dreams she is sitting amongst the Supreme Court justices! Amazing!

We love all Olivia books.

I love to read the Olivia books to my daughter at bed time. The characters have a great design to them, and each page uses bright colors sparingly to draw young readers to where Olivia is on the page, and what she is doing. The dialog is always funny, as well as the interaction between Olivia and her parents. I would recommend this to any parent with a young child.

We love all of these books, my 2 year old especially, they are her top picks from our large collection.

I love Ian Falconer's other books, but the story for this one seems a little disjointed and non-linear. Things start and stop. Of course, 3 year olds are like that and my daughter loves it, especially when I read the onomatopoeia sounds that Olivia's "band" makes.
The Olivia books are always enjoyable books to read aloud and the kids love them.
