Summary:

"Ollie is just like any other pig--he enjoys excursions with his family on the weekends, has a love-hate relationship with his older sister, and likes to visit his grandma. Except for one thing: Ollie doesn't see things the same way as everybody else does (and he certainly doesn't see things the same way his sister does). Instead of cars in traffic, he sees a circus parade. Instead of cows grazing in a field, he sees deadly bison with sharp horns and hooves. And at school, instead of letters on the board, he sees birds with pointy beaks, and fish with flapping tails in the big blue sea. Ollie's parents, teacher, (and his sister, of course) all insist that he needs glasses, but he just can't see why! When he puts them on, the world becomes ordinary. And maybe that's useful sometimes, but not always. WHAT OLLIE SAW is a warmly illustrated, sweetly funny book about seeing things differently." -- Provided by publisher.
