louise trapeze did not loseLouise Trapeze Did NOT Lose the Juggling Chickens  *Probably by Micol Ostow

“Ladies and gentlemen! Boys and girls! Feast your eyes on the one, the only Louise Trapeze! Louise is seven years old now, which means she is super mature. Ready for big responsibilities! Her BFF Stella gets to watch Clementine the Elephant, and even Ferret-Breath Fernando is trusted with errands for the ringmaster. But Louise has nada, nothing important at all to do. Until she gets her chance! She is asked to watch the three juggling chickens. Louise knows she will make a superb babysitter. Too bad Oona, Loona, and Maude have other ideas. . . .

“This follow-up to Louise Trapeze Is Totally 100% Fearless is perfect for fans of IVY AND BEAN and JUNIE B. JONES.”                     [J OSTOW,M]
