Louie's Search by Ezra Jack Keats - pbk
When I was little, I read a gazillion Ezra Jack Keats books and they were all wonderful. I feel very lucky that so many of his books are still in print for children today. :D
When Louie goes looking for a father, he meets Barney. Barney accuses Louie of stealing a music box from his truck, but Louie says he didn’t do it. It’s up to Louie’s mother to settle the conflict and reveal that meeting Barney may be the beginning of the end of Louie’s search.
This heartwarming tale features the same collage art and colorful urban setting that are featured in Keats’ popular books A Letter to Amy and Peter’s Chair.
Ezra Jack Keats (1916-1983) was the beloved author and/or illustrator of over eighty-five books for children.
