Children's books for Christmas

If you’re looking for a Christmas present for the 8-14-year-old girl in your life, look no further than the Olivia books by the Guardian's theatre critic-turned-author Lyn Gardner.
Beginning with Olivia’s First Term, the six books follow the adventures of two circus girls - Olivia and her younger sister Eel - who are billeted at their grandmother’s London stage school while their dad Jack, the Great Marvello, busies himself with such stunts as walking a high-wire between the towers of Tower Bridge.
