livia is convinced that her brother, Ian, is a space alien sent to Earth to rid the planet of big sisters. A family outing to the local planetarium only makes Olivia more certain that her original erroneous assumption is correct.
ince she now knows what Ian's
is, Olivia comes up with a way of making sure her little brother can't read her thoughts. Of course, why he would even want to do this is a whole different matter!
or a while Ian goes along with the ridiculous situation but then decides to get on his sister's good side again by doing something special for her. I'll let you discover what that is, but it does smooth things over. By the story's end, Olivia doesn't mind having a little brother from outer space.
ith her strong personality, active imagination and quirky behavior, Olivia has created a strong fan following among the younger set. Like her previous adventures, this Olivia episode will endear her even more to her ardent followers.
