LOUIS ★starred review★!

A star from Kirkus! The review is in their August 15th issue – read the full review online now here.

This one in the August issue of SCHOOL LIBRARY JOURNAL:

PreS-Gr 3–Louis is a teddy bear who has truly seen it all. And he’s a teddy bear who has had enough. He has been used and abused as a pillow, a hankie, and as lunch for a prehistoric beast. He’s been buried alive, thrown into a hurricane, hung out to dry, and has even been made an accessory to a nightmare-inducing crime! Lichtenheld lets readers know that Louis is ready to break free—but there is always a reason not to leave, and he’s going to need more cupcakes. Rowan-Zoch’s colorful and expressive illustrations complement Lichtenheld’s silly story and truly bring Louis the grumpy bear to life. Fans of the author’s Goodnight, Goodnight Construction Site will delight in this enjoyable picture book. VERDICT Perfect for read-alouds or one-on-one sharing, this is a laugh-out-loud spin on a would-be runaway’s best-laid plans.–Elizabeth Blake, Fields Corner Lib., Dorchester, MA
