Loula is Leaving for Africa

Loula is Leaving for Africa
by Anne Villeneuve
Hardcover, 32 pages
Published September 1st 2013 by Kids Can Press 
Poor Loula! She has had enough of her triplet brothers - they are mean, horrible, stinky brothers! Once she has packed the essentials, her toy cat, tea set and her best drawing, she is heading to Africa to get far away from those pests. No one pays attention to her as she declares her intentions, not even her parents. Loula finds an unexpected ally in the family chauffeur. He is quick to pull out a map and join in her expedition. With their combined imaginations the journey works its magic on young Loula. This charmingly illustrated picture book is sweet and touching. Children will enjoy all the sights as they make the trip across the park to "Africa" with Loula.
