FALCONER, Ian. Olivia. New York: Atheneum, (2000). Quarto, original pictorial paper boards, pictorial endpapers, original dust jacket. $2000.

First edition of this 2001 Caldecott Honor book, signed on the title page by Ian Falconer.

"I've always felt that children's books are for the most part condescending toward children and miss how smart children are," Falconer has said. "Their little hands and mouths may not be able to articulate what is going on in their sharp little brains. Writing children's books is an opportunity to express this, and it seems to be appreciated by both children and adults."

A fine signed copy.
