Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Louise is a pigtailed, pint-size alligator with "new gleaming-white baby choppers"-which, unfortunately, give her a "tendency to... how to put it? Gnaw. On everything. Everyone. Everywhere." (A bite-size "hole" on the jacket suggests that it, too, has succumbed to Louise's insatiable maw.) In wryly well-bred cadences that are a hoot to read aloud, Palatini (Piggie Pie) goes on to chronicle how Louise's biting manages to drive everyone around her to the brink, including an entire beach full of day trippers ("Louise was sorry. She was really, really, truly quite sorry"). Reinhart (the Encyclopedia Prehistorica pop-ups) gleefully records the mayhem with nicely nutty watercolor-and-ink cartoons that take full advantage of Louise's propensity to go for the gluteus maximus. The story looks like it's headed down an overly familiar lane when Grandmama Sadie positions herself as the only gator who truly understands Louise ("This is only a phase my little joy is going through," she avers, chucking Louise under her scaly chin). But instead of the expected heart-to-heart, Louise takes a chomp out of Grandmama too. Lots of fun-and certain to be the object of repeat-reading demands. Ages 4-7. (Sept.)

Children's Literature
Designed for preschoolers in the habit of biting, this story about Louise, a young alligator who has the same habit, treats the bad habit as a phase one must grow through. The use of colorful cartoonlike illustrations of a variety of animals depersonalizes the nasty habit and makes it seem less harmful. Throughout the story Louise’s mother implores her to stop biting but Louise continues while assuring her mother she does not mean to hurt anyone. Grandmama Sadie assures everyone her little dear will outgrow the habit, and she does but trades it for another undesirable habit. Biting among preschoolers can be a serious habit to break. Treating it as a phase one must live through does little to comfort the victims but may give the parents of biters some hope. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger, Ph.D.
School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1
Louise, a small alligator, is a wonderful child "most of the time." However, she has a proclivity for biting everything and everyone as she adjusts to her new teeth. Her mother frequently admonishes her with the phrase, "No biting, Louise!" The youngster feels guilty for her actions and tries to control herself, but the "temptation to nibble" is just too strong. Finally, Grandmama Sadie assures everyone that Louise will outgrow her nasty habit. This eventually proves to be true, until she develops another penchant (for burping). Reinhart's cartoon illustrations feature a lime-green Louise dressed in red overalls and a Grandmama whose teeth fly out of her mouth, "oooooowwww!" Children are certain to laugh at Louise's antics.
