9780140568110: Minerva Louise (Picture Puffins)

Minerva Louise loves the house with the red curtains, so she decides to explore-and preschoolers will laugh as she mistakes a string of beads for food, a rubber duck for a real one, and a sleeping cat for a "friendly cow." Janet Stoeke's sunny, simple art and text have made Minerva Louise a favorite of young children.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 1 Minerva Louise, a chicken- brained white hen, explores the inside of the farm house with a certainty that would make Mr. Magoo proud. She de scribes the household items in terms of her barnyard worldthe cat is a ``friendly cow,'' the bedspread is ``a meadow of flowers''all the while overlooking the people inside. This, the winner of the Dutton Picture Book Competition, is a one-joke story, but one that should nevertheless amuse preschoolers. The simple text in large type is just right for beginning readers. Illustrations are simple outlined shapes in flat blocks of color, bordered with a wavy rule and placed above the text on each page. Minerva Louise, a bean-bag of a chicken, is an engaging fowl.
