    17. Full review is available at my blog destinydawnlong.wordpress Excerpt Loula is Leaving for Africa reminded me a bit of Eloise and Madeline in style and tone It s got that timeless classic feel to it, even though it s a brand new book Part of that has to do with Villeneuve s writing it feels like she s looking back on a past era of children s books Rather that creating a hip, contemporary main character, she opts for a little girl who drinks tea, wears a boater hat, and hangs out with her chauffe [...]

    18. Poor Loula While reading this, I imagined that the triplets were three of our youngest son And I shuddered I wouldn t wish that on my worst enemy Well maybe I would Such a sweet story I was really captivated by this book The illustrations are adorable and the story line is something that most parents have been through I loved how all of the characters were written I think that my favorite speaking character was Gilbert he was so sweet and patient and played along with Loula Now my favorite non s [...]

    19.

    20. Thank you Kids Can Press and Edelweiss for the digital ARC This is such a sweet story Loula is running away to Africa and when she tells her parents, their reaction makes Loula think that they don t care When Gilbert, her driver, finds her in a tree, she informs him that she is not in a tree, she is in Africa Gilbert shows Loula a map and says she must take a boat to Africa Together, they travel to Africa, and at the end of the journey, Gilbert returns a very tired little girl to her home.

    21. Loula, in her yellow hat, looks like Madeline s sister, and I can imagine her as such, stuck home with 3 horrible triplet brothers while her big sister is off at school Mother is a self absorbed opera singer and Father is kindly, but obtuse, so it s lucky that Gilbert, the family chauffeur, is there to help Loula travel to Africa and to come home once again This has a lovely, old fashioned look and feel, and will appeal to older preschoolers and early elementary children who love the Bemelmans b [...]

    22. This book is about a girl who is upset with her brothers and her parents are not paying attention to her so she tries to run away to Africa Her family s driver escorts her throughout the city, through the park, and across the river doing fun activities and pretending on the way In end, she realizes that she misses home and wishes to return This story is very relatable to kids with siblings, or parents that seem to busy for them It shows the love and acceptance a family has for eachother.

    23. 4 Stars A very sweet little story I like the art Anything with watercolors I typically like I think maybe the drawing could be a little accurate though It s almost like the artist was too lazy to try to actually draw anything But really, that s very minor The story is of a little girl who is tired of her triplet brothers and wants to run away to Africa The family chauffeur helps her find her way Will seriously think about getting this for Owen.

    24. Loula is tired of her terrible triplets brothers and want to run to africa With the help of Gilbert they have a fun little adventure I thought the book was imaginative, fun, and loved the Gilbert played along with Loula I had my 7 year old sister read this to our 3 year old brother and they both enjoyed this book I loved the water color art I loved that from different age group my sister, brother and I were able to all enjoy this book together.

    25. A special running away from home day for a little girl fed up with her little brothers Can t decide it s the chauffeur who intercepts her flight and takes her on a journey through Africa the park will this make the story less relatable for little kids who don t have, you know, STAFF Or will that make it unreal in a nice way Mom s an opera singer after all, which is not that relatable either.

    26. For some reason this book reminded me of Madelineybe it s the illustrations or that hat on Loula s head Classic runaway story Thank goodness Gilbert is around Both Loula and Gilbert have active imaginations I like that the story starts before the title pageI love it when I have to pay attention The repeated phrases help give the story some rhythm There s some good vocabulary as well.

    27. A perfect book for any child that has ever felt left out at home, like the main character, Loula, who has had enough of her MEAN, HORRIBLE, STINKY triplet brothers Kids will enjoy observing the illustrations for evidence that the tornado above Loula s head is shrinking before eventually dissipating Loula learns that sometimes all you need is a little distraction to calm down and in the end, there s no place like home

    28. Loula is tired of her mean, horrible, stinky triplet brothers She decides to run away to Africa She doesn t get far before Gilbert, the family chauffeur, finds her He becomes her accomplice and helps her get to Africa which is really a park not too far from home In the end, he makes sure a sleepy little girl makes it home safely This is a nice, gentle story about many children s fantasy of running away from home The ink and watercolor illustrations are simple and sweet.
