Loula''s three brothers, the Rotten Pirate Triplets, don''t want to play with her. ?Brothers,? mutters Loula, ?the worst invention in the world.? She decides what she really needs is a sister, one just like her. So naturally, she asks her parents to make one for her. Only, it''s not that easy. Her father explains, ?Making a sister is . . . well, it''s like making a cake. You need the right ingredients.? To make a sister, they say, you need a papa and a mama, butterflies in the stomach, a full moon, a candlelit supper, kisses and hugs and chocolate. Well, that''s no problem. Loula can follow this recipe! And she sets out with her loyal sidekick, the chauffeur Gilbert, to do just that. <BR<BR This second picture book written and illustrated by Anne Villeneuve about the charming and witty Loula firmly establishes her as a classic character who will endure in the hearts of young children. Her slightly eccentric home life adds a delightful whimsy to Loula''s escapades, even while the book deals with the very common experience of wishing for a sibling. The artwork, with several different scenes laid out across each spread, is full of energy and expression. Loula''s own unique blend of imagination and verve provides an empowering, inspiring and positive message, particularly for girls, that you should take matters into your own hands to improve your life. There are great character education lessons here on taking the initiative and exhibiting resilience when seeking a solution.
