Summary

Louise has a problem. She has the tendency to . . . how to put it?

Gnaw?

Chomp?

Bite!

. . . on everything and everybody. She promises Mother that she won't do it again, but sometimes Louise just can't help herself.

"OOOOooooowww!"

No biting, louise captures the humor--and the pain--of a common stage for preschoolers.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "When you're born an alligator, it's natural to bite. Toddler Louise is no exception; she's an absolute dear most of the time. Her tendency to gnaw on everything is annoying. It has also affected her friendships, and has caused her to fib. Her mother isn't pleased at her daughter's biting problem, but Grandmama Sadie assures everyone that it's only a phase. She turns out to be right. The biting stops, but the burping begins. Chew, Louise, chew! pleads her mother, but Louise, with blond pigtails and red overalls, just can't help herself. Reinhart's comic, anthropomorphized animals play up the farcical scenes and greatly energize the slight, purposeful story line. Preschoolers will giggle, especially if they have a sibling with similar tendencies, and they'll be very enthusiastic about the sound effects, Burp. Burp. Burp. --Cummins, Julie Copyright 2007 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Louise is a pigtailed, pint-size alligator with "new gleaming-white baby choppers"-which, unfortunately, give her a "tendency to... how to put it? Gnaw. On everything. Everyone. Everywhere." (A bite-size "hole" on the jacket suggests that it, too, has succumbed to Louise's insatiable maw.) In wryly well-bred cadences that are a hoot to read aloud, Palatini (Piggie Pie) goes on to chronicle how Louise's biting manages to drive everyone around her to the brink, including an entire beach full of day trippers ("Louise was sorry. She was really, really, truly quite sorry"). Reinhart (the Encyclopedia Prehistorica pop-ups) gleefully records the mayhem with nicely nutty watercolor-and-ink cartoons that take full advantage of Louise's propensity to go for the gluteus maximus. The story looks like it's headed down an overly familiar lane when Grandmama Sadie positions herself as the only gator who truly understands Louise ("This is only a phase my little joy is going through," she avers, chucking Louise under her scaly chin). But instead of the expected heart-to-heart, Louise takes a chomp out of Grandmama too. Lots of fun-and certain to be the object of repeat-reading demands. Ages 4-7. (Sept.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
