Ian Falconer's original intention for Olivia was as a little Christmas present for his niece of the same name. The real Olivia is an extremely headstrong, imaginative child who, even at the age of three, could argue through any "inconvenience" to achieve her goal. At any rate, the drawings and the character became better and better. A couple of years later, Simon and Schuster caught onto Falconer's work and Olivia captured their hearts too.
