Summary

Summary

It's hard for a little kid to get noticed in a neighborhood full of busy people. And Louie isn't looking for just anyone to notice him -- he's looking for a father. Louie's story, as meaningful today as it was when first published more than twenty years ago, proves that love can be found in the most unusual places.


Author Notes

Ezra Jack Keats was born Jacob Ezra Katz in Brooklyn, New York on March 11, 1916. He was a mural painter for the Works Progress Administration (WPA) for three years before taking a job as a comic book illustrator. During World War II, he joined the United States Air Corp and was a camouflage pattern designer. After the war, he changed his name to make his Jewish heritage less noticeable.

He wrote and/or illustrated more than 85 children's books. The first book he illustrated was Jubilant for Sure by Elizabeth Hubbard Lansing, which was published in 1954. The first book he wrote was My Dog is Lost, which was published in 1960. His other works include Pet Show and The Snowy Day, which won a Caldecott Medal in 1963. He was also awarded the University of Southern Mississippi Medallion for outstanding contributions in the field of children's literature in 1980. He died of a heart attack on May 6, 1983.

Publisher's Weekly Review

" `What kind of neighborhood is this?' thought Louie. `Nobody notices a kid around here.' " Fans of Ezra Jack Keats will recognize his signature collage style in Louie's Search, in which the young hero finds a special companion in his neighborhood. First published in 1980, Keats's message still applies: love can be found in the most unusual places. ( Mar.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
