Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: Olive is very sweet, very well-intentioned, and amusingly literal. We're happy that she's going to stay with the family.

Con: It’s not clear why Olive earns Grandma’s trust after she accidentally poisoned both of them.

  1. I liked this story, but the happy ending seemed tacked on. As you say, she nearly poisons a grown woman. What kind of harm will she do, accidentally, of course, to a baby?
