Overview

Louise, the Adventures of a Chicken by Kate DiCamillo, Harry Bliss

She longed for adventure.

So she left her home and ventured out into the wide world.

The pleasures and perils she met proved plentiful: marauding pirates on the majestic seas, a ferocious lion under the bright lights of the big top, a mysterious stranger in an exotic and bustling bazaar.

Yet in the face of such daunting danger, our heroine . . .

She was brave.

She was fearless.

She was feathered.

She was a chicken.

A not-so-chicken chicken.

Her name?

My grandchildren loved the book. The illustration we fantistic, the children seached each page for all the details. Then acted out the story as I read. It was one of the best books I have purchased for them in a long while. Thank you Barnes and Noble, Autors and Illustrators.
