Louise the Big Cheese is back, and she’s charming as ever...but is she VIP?
“Dream big” is Louise the Big Cheese’s motto. But try though she might, she’s still feels like plain old Louise. Her new friend Claire E’Claire holds the promise of stardom with her VIP charm school…but is Claire all that she appears to be? Young readers will sympathize as Louise finds out it takes more than VIP charm to make a true friend.
In her fourth outing, Louise, the small girl with ginormous aspirations, meets Claire Eclaire from Paris, who invites her to attend her charm school. But it turns out that Madame Claire is bossy, makes Louise wear a shower curtain, and is actually from Paris, Maine. Goode's comic book style watercolors match the young diva's energy and ambition. Even readers who relate to Louise's high-flying fantasies should appreciate seeing her come back down to earth (and remember what it means to be a good friend). Ages 5 up.
