KIRKUS REVIEW

The indomitable Louise returns, this time in pursuit of a fanciful pair of shoes (Louise the Big Cheese, 2009). The budding fashionista longs to expand her wardrobe beyond her tiresome brown, squeaky shoes. Along with her faithful pup, PeeWee, Louise fantasizes about life with spectacular shoes; in which gold underwear, meetings with the Queen and ponies in the backyard are mundane occurrences. Louise despairs when her best friend Fern arrives in school with sparkly patent-leather pumps and an attitude to match. With wit and humor, Primavera explores the powerful lure of fabulous footwear and the importance of friends who support you through both good and poor fashion choices. Goode’s watercolor illustrations adeptly illuminate Louise’s sassy spirit. Her comical depictions of PeeWee perfectly capture the diminutive sidekick’s big personality. With numerous sly puns included in the illustrations, this sparkling tale is a treat for Imeldas of all ages. (Picture book. 4-8)
