9780142420997: Minerva Louise

A cheerful reintroduction to the friendly chicken, Minerva Louise!

Minerva Louise loves the farmhouse with the red curtains, and one day she decides to explore it from the inside. Children will laugh at her silly antics and love pointing out her mistakes. Stoeke's bright, streamlined art and offbeat text have put the daffy Minerva Louise on the map - and won her a place in children's hearts.

This reissue will add a charming new cover to the sweet story that children already love.

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.
