Kate Dicamillo: When I think of Louise, the words that come to mind are insouciant and unflappable. I suppose that when all is said and done, she is brave. But she's also kind of, um, clueless. Did you have his style in mind when you wrote the story, or did you join up with him afterward? Dicamillo: When I wrote Louise, I didn't have a particular illustrator in mind. But the chicken (the whole world!) that Harry has brought to life in this book has delighted and humbled me. He's a genius. com: You've written award-winning books for kids of every age.

Louise is not a chicken chicken. Instead, Louise shatters chicken stereotypes with her courageous spirit and longing for adventure

Odyssey Award (2010). 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. Louise is not a chicken chicken. Instead, Louise shatters chicken stereotypes with her courageous spirit and longing for adventure. Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken tells the story of a chicken who literally dreams of exciting journeys and dangerous circumstances. Louise’s adventures are chronicled in three separate chapters. The first voyage takes place at sea.

Barbara Rosenblat's commanding narration brings Louise's daring nature fully to light. Drawing out the drama of the hen's close call with pirates, her narrow escape from the jaws of a lion, and a daring jailbreak, Rosenblat inflates Louise's small story to maximum advantage, much to the delight of listeners.

This is about a farm chicken "Louise" longing for adventure. Its not that she isn't aware of the wonderful life she has on the farm but rather the longing of that adrenaline rush that only comes with near-death experiences. Yes I said near-death. It seems Louise doesnt think its a true adventure until her travels take twisted turns that cause her feathered breasts to nearly beat out of her chest. Four chapters that take her onto rough seas, at a circus performing death-defying highwire acts and a middle eastern bazaar where she becomes imprisoned. While in the midsts of these adventures (after she gets her adrenaline out of the way) she always longs to go back to the farm where she fondly remembers her perfect little place there.

My 9 year old (she loves chickens) was like "What the heck? Why does she keep getting excited when she is so close to dying?" So her view of Louise is that she is just one extremely crazy @ss chicken.

The book doesnt have too many pages within the four chapters. Out of approximately 45 pages, 12 of those are illustrations only or just portions of the story that are just one sentence long. You can breeze through the book fairly fast. My daughter and I took turns reading the pages.

This was bought with an 18" plush chicken that looked exactly like Louise only that chicken is called Henrietta the Hen. If you have a chicken lover child like I do, I would recommend giving the book AND plush chicken. They compliment each other well.

All in all we enjoyed the book.

I found this treasure at our local library and my son (6) & I enjoy it so much, we will buy a copy. This book is written and illustrated with great humour and still there are lessons to be learned from Louise's adventures as they turn into misadventures and she does finally appreciate her humble home.

A wonderful pairing of author and illustrator, this book is simply delightful, imaginative, funny, silly, and, of course, adventurous!

I particularly enjoyed what I perceived as reverences to some great novels and movies at the end as Louise is helped home by a Humphrey Bogart look-a-like in a boat (African Queen?), a Lawrence of Arabia-ish character on a camel and in a hot air balloon as in the Jules Verne classic, Around the World in 80 Days. Fun for young and old!

PS The last chapter is set in a far away land that is mysterious but by no means racist as one reviewer seemed to think. It mentions no beliefs or race or country at all but is set in a market or bazaar and Louise is mistaken for an escaped hen by a "tall, dark stranger". Should the bazaar have been set in a modern mega-mall? I don't think so. If there are descendants of old-style pirates around (1st chapter) should they protest their ancestors being portrayed as brutes? Again, I don't think so.

Modern society has already taken too much fun out of childhood. We should applaud an author who tries to inject a little pure joy and giggling back in.

The best adventure story about a brave chicken named Louise. The illustrations are fantastic the children love looking at each page to see the exciting aspects of Louise's adventure. We have enjoyed reading this book to our children for years. Each chapter is about a different adventure for the brave chicken Louise. I particularly like how it is in chapter format so that you can read one at a time which is perfect for my toddler but I can also read it through with my kindergartener. Our kids adore this story and I often buy this book as a baby gift. It's just that wonderful of a story.

Really cute story about a plucky little adventure craving pullet. I'm a great fan of Kate diCamillo after reading her story about Edward Tulane, and found this picture book to be quite lovely. I can't wait to share it with my goddaughter, and with the kindergarten group at church. Bright and colorful illustrations will keep children entertained as well.

We have all of the Mercy Watson books so we decided to get this one to add to our little library. My son loves Louise's adventures. He thinks the book is great and he loves the illustrations. He particularly enjoys her adventure in the circus with the lion. This is a shorter book than her Mercy Watson books but still a nice length for a bedtime story. I would highly recommend all of her books for young children. Happy reading!!

This is one of our favorite books! My daughters are 4 and 5 and this is part of their regular rotation. It is a little long, but well-paced and entertaining. At first my extremely sensitive kids (they are afraid of some of the plots on Sesame Street) were afraid of the picture of the drowning pirate. They quickly go over it and now quote the book. It's really funny to hear a 5 year old call someone "my sweet coq a vin"!

Louise and her adventures are epic! This has been a long time family favorite, for kids and adults alike. The story is charming, the illustrations are beautiful, and Louise is quite the heroine!
very funny author... I buy all her books !
