Louise the Big Cheese
by Elise Primavera
ill. by Diane Goode
New York : Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers, c2009
Louise knows she is going to be on Broadway someday. Or maybe she will walk down the red carpet to recieve her Bosco, or is it Oscar? At any rate, she loves the limelight and is determined to make it big some day. For now she will settle for being Cinderella in her class play. Things get complicated when the audition doesn't go quite how she planned.
Young girls will grab this book just because of the pink and sparkly cover. The illustrations are adorable without overtaking the story. Happily, there is a story, it isn't all fluff and shiny letters. Children will learn a valuable lesson about friendship and attitude from Louise.
