Arnold and Louise
Arnold is a large black bear. He's thoughtful and careful.
Louise is a small brown-and-white chipmunk. She's loud and unpredictable.
They have nothing in common.
They are the best of friends.
Arnold and Louise is a series of transitional chapter books that I wrote and Chris Chatterton illustrated. They are great for emerging readers (and also terrific for read-alouds).
Book # 1: The Great Louweezie
Arnold is a large black bear. His best friend, Louise, is a small chipmunk. But one day, Louise insists she is NOT Louise--she's the Great Louweezie, and she can predict the future! But when the Great Louweezie's demands begin to test Arnold's patience, the game feels much less fun. What will happen if friendship isn't in their future?

Book # 2: Lost and Found
When Louise borrows Arnold's newly found treasure, he's sure he'll never see it again. After all, she loses just about everything he lends her. Louise swears she hasn't lost it, but to get it back, she sends Arnold on a treasure hunt of her own--or is it a wild goose chase?
