Review quote

That indomitable diva Louise is back, this time showing kids that hard work is its own reward. Louise's latest woe is the fact that her goal of getting straight A's is incompatible with her teacher's principles--Mrs. Pearl never gives A's. But that doesn't stop Louise from trying...too hard, in fact. Her calling out and doing things without permission only earn negative attention from her new teacher. And her schoolwork? "You can do better, Miss Cheese." After imagining all sorts of tragedies befalling her tough teacher, Louise is pleased one morning to see a substitute. But Miss Sprinkles does not push Louise to do better, accepting mediocrity, and when Louise gets an A along with every other student, it is not the achievement she had envisioned. She actually misses Mrs. Pearl. Goode's watercolor illustrations perfectly capture Louise's sass and attitude, her hopefulness and her frustration. Readers will laugh aloud at the predicaments Louise imagines for the hapless Mrs. Pearl. And parents and teachers alike will cheer at Louise's resolve to do her best. If only everyone had Louise's work ethic, determination and spunk, and every teacher pushed students to do their best. A timely message for readers on both sides of the desk.
