      Of all the books I've read so far by Ezra Jack Keats, this is my favourite. Louie is a very shy little boy who doesn't speak to the other children. When Roberto and Susie put on a puppet show they invite all the other neighbourhood kids, and Louie comes and sits alone. As soon as the puppet show starts, Louie's attention is drawn to Gussie, one of the puppets, and he speaks to it! He is so captivated that the puppeteers tell him, through Gussie, to please sit down until the end of the show. Loui [...]

      I picked up this freebie book at the deGrummond Collection's (at the University of Southern Mississippi) special exhibit on Ezra Jack Keats, which I saw about 3 years ago, but never got around to reading it. I picked it up to read to my son the other day, but I must say it is not one of my favorites of his work. Susie and Roberto are putting on a puppet show with a mouse puppet and baby puppet named Gussie. Louie, a younger child in the audience, just falls in love with Gussie and can't resist t [...]

      Louie is a story about a boy names Louie that never spoke. Then as the puppet show that Roberto and Susie’s were putting on for their friends Louie got up and spoke to the Gussie the puppet. Louie really likes Gussie. Louie finds a note under his door asking him to go outside and follow the string. There was a surprise for Louie at the end of the string.Activities:- Word wall with vocab words from the story-Flannel board story- retelling the sequence of events in the story- reenact the story w [...]

      3.5 Stars As always I love Ezra Jack Keats artwork. I like the layers and textures. I had to read this book twice because I got distracted. The first time was thinking "WHAT" Then when I read it, it touched my heart. Very Sweet, fun, just an over all good book. Why couldn't I give it a higher scoreI think it comes down to I liked it but didn't love it. It wouldn't be one of those must have, must must save and share with the Grandkids sort of book but still really nice and worth reading.

    6. Anna

      It's a quiet book, but one that I would love to discuss with children. Louie is a quiet boy who does not say much, so it's quite surprising when he immediately becomes taken with a puppet named Gussie at Susie and Roberto's puppet show. The other children laugh at his peculiar outburst. Ezra Jack Keats does a wonderful job of helping the reader empathize with Louie without having to spell everything out for you or hit you over the head with a moral. It's a simple, yet thoughtful story. Excellent [...]

    7. Janae

      This probably isn't a book that children will request over and over, but it's the first I've read that had a child who could quite possibly be on the autism spectrum as the main character. Louie is silent, none of the kids have ever heard him speak, but when they put on a puppet show he is overwhelmed with happiness and tries to engage. The other children are respectful and gracious. My four-year-old didn't really seem to get what was going on, but it did open a conversation about differences in [...]

    8. Phillip Vincent

      Splendid and touching. Louie, who I perceive as a child with special needs, is made to feel included and valued. It's very subtle, so you're not sure if there's something different about him, but I do think Keats was reflecting a child who is a pariah or just an outsider by nature. The graffiti and trash made of scrap paper is fantastically creative and meaningful. It adds a layer of ironic beauty to the neglected city streets of NY.

    9. Cara Byrne

      "He didn't answer. He was still sad from his dream. His mother went on, 'Someone slipped a note for you under the door.'" I agree with many of the reviewers of this book that while it's not one of Keats best, it is a quiet, sweet meditation on kindness and community - centering around a little boy who is a bit different but finds a special connection to a puppet named Gussie.

    10. Ai-ling

      A friend reminded me of this book. From doing puppet shows at libraries and schools, I have seen for myself that all kinds of children, especially those slow to talk, love puppets! Keats seems to have experienced this too.

    11. Robyn Simmons

      This story tells about a young boy with an extremely vivid imagination. Once again Ezra Jack Keats does great illustrations. This story could be used as a read aloud that encourages young boys to imagine and enjoy reading. Students can make great personal connections to this story.

    12. Robert

      This is the first of the 'Louie Series', a spinoff from the popular 'Peter Series' set in the same colorful New York neighborhood. Louie is quiet, shy and lonely and in need of a friend. Will he find one at a puppet show?

    13. Gala

      This had to be Louie first time at a puppet show. I like the way the children handled his outburst.I love the reaction of Children when they see puppet shows and bubbles blown. This book can starts some arts and crafts by making puppets and even doing a show.

    14. Angela

      This is another great story basket book. Your can also do some great creative writing activities where students describe their own puppets. You can make your own puppets in class as well. Many options.

    15. Michael

      A touching story about a child who doesn't usually speak, and what might connect with them and get them to open up. Not as poignant as Keats' Peter and Archie books, but still a nice slice of childhood life, with a racially diverse cast.

    16. Megan Zimmerman

      A great way to teach students about loving one another and sharing. A great story about Louie, who goes to his friends puppet show, and loves the main character Gussie. He goes home and dreams about Gussie, only to wake up and find that his friends have left him a present.

    17. Brittany

      I would use this book as a lesson on puppets and have an activity creating a puppet show using their imagination and creativity.
