Behind the Story
Olvina Flies


This is Grace's long awaited "chicken book". The idea of Olvina, the chicken, happened one day when her roommate Alvina came home from work. "People always spell my name wrong," Alvina told Grace, "Today I got a letter addressed to Olvina!"

"Olvina?" Grace said, " Well, do you know olva means egg in Italian? Olvina would be a great name for a chicken!" And hence, Olvina was born.
