AudiobookI see some American reviewers on here having a bit of trouble with the Australianness of this book, and some even say that although they as adults are able to work out meanings from context they wouldn't expect American children to be able to do the same. I take issue with this view of kids and reading. You do know that Australian readers have to be up to speed on all sorts of Americanisms, right? As well as with British English that's not like our own either. We grow up reading mostly [...]

This Australian import is an odd duck (or odd platypus, maybe) – in fact, its interesting blend of offbeat plot, eccentric characters (except for the rather grounded young heroine), and slightly quirky narrative voice reminded me quite a bit of North American author Polly Horvath (she seems to bounce from the US to Canada and back).Olive is the only child of Mog Garnaut, a successful attorney whose energy, beauty and moxie are legendary, but who lacks traditional housekeeping skills, not to me [...]

Olive is one of those characters that makes you want to climb into the pages of the book and hug. Olive is a twelve year old girl whose best and only friend dumps her in favor of a more popular friend. To make matters worse, she also turns on Olive and becomes intent on making Olive the second biggest outcast in her grade. To deal with her isolation, Olive invents an imaginary twin named Pip and finally Olive has a true friend, because honestly, she's better off without her former best friend. W [...]

This Australian offering is so Australian that I think it may be difficult for many children in the states. I got all the meanings from context but I certainly wasn't familiar with some of them. "The lock was unsnibbed and the door pushed open." "She sewed sequins onto trainers and wind-cheaters"� "Even though Matilda whinged about not having any sisters" The story starts as the typical two best friends, one gets a better, more popular best friend and the other, Olive, is left miserably alone.

Pip: the Story of Olive is a book about a girl named Olive. She is very pale complected and lives by the sea with her mother. You are able to see how strong and independent Olive is because she basically had to raise herself since her mother is very around. Olive goes through a major heart break, but learns to over come it. I enjoyed this book very much because it really opens your eyes to how a young girls acts in a world full of crazy things. It shows you the type of stuff that some people go [...]

I enjoyed the premise of this book. It is one I read to my eight year old daughter. She enjoyed it. It was maybe a little complex for her as far as Pip went but I love the moral of the story, the family situations are highlighted beautifully. I also like the approach the author took regarding friendships.

Olive is an only child who lives by the sea in a house of antiques and junk with her quirky mother Mog. Olive doesn't always fit in, but she's always been happy with her best friend Mathilda. Until Mathilda decides not to be friends with her anymore, choosing the popular Amelia instead. When Olive meets her spunky and daring (but invisible) twin Pip, she is awed and impressed by her behavior that is nothing like Olive, but gets her into trouble at school. Pip helps her uncover the mystery of Oli [...]

I had to look up words like chilli, wagging, and doona. I loved the exposure to new words. The book is an Australian tween book. Olive, the protagonist, goes through bullying, a busy mom, an unknown dad, etc. There were a couple of small parts that I know have been cited as being inappropriate for tweens. I think it droends on the tween. If you read the comments on your tween's instagram acct, you likely won't find the book to be inappropriate.Mathilda goes into a chat room. She's inappropriate. [...]

What happened to Olive wasn't because she'd only ever felt half. It didn't even happen because her house was full of crap-knacks and clutter, because she called her mother Mog, or because she knew of a man named WilliamPetersMustardSeed. It wasn't because she had a peculiar relationship with the number two, or because her skin was the exact colour of chicken loaf. Although there was never any doubt that it was a shake-it-all-about hokey-pokey of all these things, what happened to Olive couldn't [...]

Pip: The Story Of Olive If you have ever seen the movie thirteen going on thirty you will defiantly like this book. In this story there are seven main characters Olive, Pip, Mug, Mr. and Mrs. Graham, Mathilda, and Martha. Olive is one of the main characters that show up in the story the most. It took place at school, the grahams house, and outside, Olive’s house and in the country. This story is how Olive is embarrassed about the way she looks. Later in the story Olive finds out that Martha is [...]

From Tracey - This is a really sweet little book about a girl who is being bullied at school finding her *inner rebel*. Lots of messages for the tweenies about finding themselves, finding their estranged parents and learning how to tough out those tough days. Life is ever hard being a 12 year old girld i think this very sweet book might make it a lil easier

I really liked this book . At first this book was a little confusing because this girl Olive imagines having a twin sister Pip who is Olive but the non shy one . The one who always speeks her mind , and doesn't care what other people think of her. I guess it confused me in the beginning because it doesn't actually tell you if Pip is real or not. But in the end the book it tells you really who everybody is . I would suggest reading this if you like fiction .

Great characters. Interesting setting. Exciting adventure looking for Olive's dad. Pip's existence is never explained, which could be frustrating for some readers. Sophisticated readers will understand that she was Olive's creation and never really existed to begin with, but Kane never actually explains it. Vocabulary's a little foreign. Great for older readers who like things a little quirky.

Cute in places, a little odd in others, this is a generally well written novel. Kane nails the nastiness of YEar 7 girls, although her use of voice seems inauthentic at times. The plot twists and turns (a bit much at times to be honest) its way to a satisfying conclusion, although elements of this will be obvious to most fairly early on.

Quirky and very confusing at times, but I liked it overall. It didn't seem like a children's book, but it felt too young for YA. It seemed like a charming book for adults who wanted to relive their childhoods. I guess I would classify this as a tween read if I had to.

I never really finished this book. It was not amusing at all. I can name about 20 things that was wrong with this book. First of all the introduction wasn't that good to me and let's just say that it didn't get any better from there.

Het was net niet helemaal waar ik op hoopte. De ontwikkeling van Olijf was echt wel heel mooi en er zaten ook echt prachtige gedachten in dit boek. Maar soms vond ik het een tikkeltje saai.

This explores how children can feel when they lose their best friend to another. Olive conjures up an imaginary friend, who makes her do things she would never have done as Olive.

I hated this book. It didn't make any sense and it was utterly boring. I only read half of it because I had better things to do than waste time.
