Olivia is convinced that if she wears her lucky red and white striped tights she can do just about anything. When she learns that Francine, a classmate, won an award for selling the most cookies, Olivia is determined to take first place as the new cookie drive begins.

Alas, things don't go as smoothly as Olivia would like and it doesn't look like she will be the number one salesperson. How Olivia reacts to the situation is rather interesting and makes this one of the more delightful stories in this series. Everything works out in an unusual manner and the little white pig shows she can handle a little adversity.

There's one small quirk with this picture book you should be ready for. Olivia supposedly loses her lucky tights before she begins to sell cookies. As your child looks at the illustrations, he or she will probably notice that Olivia apparently has nothing but red and white striped tights in her wardrobe. If your child notices this fact, you better be ready with an answer that explains how she knows which ones are the lucky ones!

This little paperback also comes in a Spanish version. You should be able to find Olivia Vende Galletas online.
