pretty upset that his dad has to go out of town for two weeks, but then his
grandma comes to stay with them. Now he is stuck with only girls in the house.
Worse yet, he is mistaken for a girl, and is assigned a role in school where a
boy wants to play with a doll. One of his best friends has a crush on a girl,
and Louie doesn’t get it at all. Now he wants nothing to do with girls, to bad
his best friend Thermos is a girl.
is growing on me, its easy to read with tons of great illustrations and events
that elementary students can relate to, like grandma coming to visit, dreaded
school assignments, and little sisters. I still don’t get the whole thing about
Louie wanting to be a comedian, which is a large part of each book. I asked
three classes yesterday if they knew what a comedian did, and they had no idea.
I don’t think there are that many G-rated comedians that perform for children
to get to know (I can think of one), but I can’t imagine a child choosing to
attend that over the discovery museum.
