Louisiana's Way Home | Kate DiCamillo
post image
Pickpick

Every time I finish a DiCamillo book, I sit and think about it. I do it because I‘m sure that‘s her point behind the book. And I do it because I can‘t not think about it. This book is stupendous - love it beyond expression. I preordered this book 4 months ago and it was worth the wait. DiCamillo is a master story-teller, master writer, and master heart-wrencher. Read it. It‘s for adults or kids. Read it now. #louisianaswayhome #katedicamillo

If you share a book with someone this Fall, let it be this one.

Tamra Ridiculous, but I didn‘t know she lives in Minneapolis until just the other day when she was interviewed on MPR! This is her first ever sequel and said Louisiana‘s voice just kept coming back to her when she‘d write. TBR! 1y
heidisreads @Tamra Yes!! I‘ve tried to get to an event to hear her speak, but it‘s never worked out. Louisiana was such a great character in Raymie. I‘m glad she got her own book! 1y

My review of this book (last post) had me using "Kate" instead of DiCamillo or Kate DiCamillo. This is strictly because "Kate" is 4 characters long and DiCamillo is 9--and Kate DiCamillo is 13 characters--and I run out of room in my reviews if I use the 13. So, I FULLY respect Kate DiCamillo. But, I use "Kate" for space. Yes? :) *I love these lines. ?And I love this Dr. Meescham, would love to meet her & sit on her horsehair sofa. #katedicamillo

Fantastic writing, per usual. Newberry medaled for a reason. My take-away from second reading through?
That there is always hope. In the most desperate of times, hope prevails. And wins. #katedicamillo #thetaleofdespereaux

elainemckinley Absolutely one of the best! I‘m reading it to my 3rd grade class right now, so many great lessons in here—as with all of her books! 2y
Joy4Lit @elainemckinley Yes and yes!!🙌 2y

He's a mouse. But these words. His true emotion - human emotion - the way anyone who loves another with an affection they've never known before feels, they want to give "honor." Despereaux speaks honesty, love--unconditional love, regardless of trial or tragedy or insurmountable odds. That is honor. And I'm like ?? #iwantthathonor #thetaleofdespereaux #katedicamillo

Ok. Kate is amazing. She's literally one of my favorite authors and this is THE genre I want (and have written) to write in. There's a reason this book was a Newberry Honor winner: it's INCREDIBLE. Poignant, sweet, funny, witty, and sad, whether you're an adult or kid, you need to read it. It's enjoyable every time I read it. #katedicamillo
