    A fun book with adorable pictures There is nothing especially amazing about the story and yet it is so much fun to go along with Louise as she seeks out new adventures then returns to her cozy familiar roost when she's sampled enough from any one adventure I really hate to say this because it sounds like a horrible pun but I just kept thinking Louise is just so plucky and her glittering determination is fun and even a bit inspiring ; The illustrations are great Louise radiates personality and makes me smile And of course it's neat to see a brave chicken

    Louise the chicken is adventure bound in the three stories presented in this picture book from two time Newbery medalist Kate DiCamillo In episode one Louise goes to sea enduring a pirate attack and shipwreck in the course of her sailing life In the second installment she joins the circus as a tightrope walker narrowly avoiding being eaten by the circus lion when she falls from her high perch In the third and final tale Louise finds her way to a far country Near Eastern by the look of it where she is imprisoned by the tall dark stranger about whom she'd been warned by a fortune teller and must make her escapeIn each of the three stories in Louise the Adventures of a Chicken our heroine is led by a sense of wanderlust out into the world and by a sense of homesickness and longing for peace and security back to her own farm I found it interesting that in the final story the point is made that chickens should be allowed to wander free rather than living constricted lives in cramped uarters Perhaps a commentary on modern agricultural production? It was also interesting to note that Louise turns from adventurer to storyteller at the close of the book sharing the joys and terrors of her travels with her friends at home I'm not sure that this is destined to be a favorite it was pleasant but mostly unremarkable but I was interested to see what DiCamillo whose novels for older children are so accomplished would do with the picture book form Recommended to anyone looking for picture books featuring characters who march to the beat of their own drummer

    I figured I should review this since it has become the biggest hit in Morton household audiobooks Fred just now 4 got the book at the library with the CD so he can follow along when you hear this sound turn the page I have heard this one at least a dozen times now both in our living room and on two consecutive trips to Maine We renewed it Fred loves that there are pirates Honestly Louise's adventures are pretty good The reader is great too she does French accents for the chickens This is the rare book that doesn't bug me the 17th time through

    I'd been wanting to read this book for a while now but every time I looked for it on the shelf it was checked out At last I've had my chance and it was worth the wait Louise is a chicken who longs for adventure and flies the coop looking for it This book relates three of her adventures at sea captured by pirates at the circus on the trapeze and overseas at what appears to be an Arabic marketplace In each adventure however Louise's homesickness points her wings toward home where her sister hens are eager to hear about her latest adventures My favorite part of the story is when Louise releases the hens trapped in the cage with her by picking the lock with her wing So cuteHarry Bliss' colorful illustrations make this a visual treat He sure can draw cute chickens My favorite picture is the last 2 page spread showing all the hens in their nesting boxes with the pigs and dog sleeping nearby and the cat peering out the barn door into the rain Though the text doesn't mention any particular country as the setting one gets the idea from Bliss' illustrations that it's France because all the hens have French names written in signs above their nesting boxes and when Louise resigns from the circus she hands in a paper entitled La Resignation I wonder why he did that? Anyway this story would make a great readaloud for middle to upper elementary age kids and is recommended for anyone who loves adventure and chickens

    If anyone could imbue a chicken with a personality worthy of an epic journey it would be Kate DiCamillo but even she may not uite be up to such a challenge However although Louise may not have the personality of Gollie Mercy or Despereaux her tale is just as charming And really should we expect any author to truly see into the soul of a chicken?Louise yearns for the adventures that we all regularly encounter our dreams Since she is actually living out those dreams when she returns home she is able to sleep the deep and dreamless and peaceful sleep of true adventurers The excitement of each chapter ends with that rhythmically written image of peaceful sleep including the epilogue like final chapter making this a good bedtime story read in pieces or in its entiretyAs a picture book there is plenty of visual context to support an ELL in understanding the words This is particularly important when the story has several severe breaks from the normal A to B to C progression of a simple tale A chicken on a farm no on a ship under attack by pirates no auditioning for a circus It would be reasonable for an English language learner to doubt their own understanding with a tale like this The unusual use of chapters will also help readers come to terms with the shifts in narrative

    Louise was not like other chickens She was not content to stay in the henhouse so she set out for an adventure on the high seas Just as Louise was beginning to think the sea wasn't as exciting as she expected a pirate ship appeared With a little luck Louise was able to escape the pirates She headed back to the henhouse for some rest but Louise still longed for adventure When the circus came to town Louise finds herself in the high wire act Just as soon as this too started to become dull the lion got loose Again Louise somehow managed to escape Louise returned to the henhouse for some rest yet still craved adventure This time Louise traveled to a land far away where there was a crowded bazaar After visiting a fortune teller a strange man captured Louise and carried her to a cage full of other chickens Will Louise be able to escape yet again or are her days of adventure finally over?I read the tumblebooks version of this story The narrators were wonderful even performing believable French accents The camera movement also helped make the pictures come to life

    My main reason for liking this book is because it's unapologetically weird However it lacks something fundamental that it would need to elevate it to the status of a great book The kids get a kick out of it and I love the fact that it's long but the stories just don't pack as much punch as they could Everything seems a little dryI feel like a appropriate illustrator could have been found than Bliss whose pictures are a bit modern for a story apparently set in the 17 or 1800s The story could have flowed a little better too The biggest dissapointment of this book is that it really wouldn't have taken much work to make it greatAll that said it's the easiest task in the world to prompt the kids to draw or write about Louise's Next Adventure The results are uniformly hilarious
