Louise, the Adventures of a Chicken

(2) K-3 Illustrated by Harry Bliss. Barnyard hen Louise longs for adventure. Leaving home, she's captured by pirates, chased by a lion, and kidnapped at a bazaar. Louise ultimately returns to tell her tales, and the book ends with a contented henhouse. DiCamillo masterfully conveys the fulfillment of sharing stories. Louise's adventures are exciting (and often funny), each dramatically shown in Bliss's sweeping watercolors.
