In her fourth outing, Louise, the small girl with ginormous aspirations, meets Claire Eclaire from Paris, who invites her to attend her charm school. But it turns out that Madame Claire is bossy, makes Louise wear a shower curtain, and is actually from Paris, Maine. Goode’s comic book–style watercolors match the young diva’s energy and ambition. Even readers who relate to Louise’s high-flying fantasies should appreciate seeing her come back down to earth (and remember what it means to be a good friend). Ages 5–up. Agent: Steven Malk, Writers House. (Feb.)
