Grade 1-3-In this follow-up to Louise Takes Charge (Dial, 1998), Lionel's older sister decides that she has become too set in her ways and vows to shake things up. After disastrous hairstyle and fashion choices, Louise, with the help of her amused but understanding parents, learns that change comes gradually from the inside, not from abrupt physical alterations. After thinking things over, she decides to try to overcome her stage fright by participating in the school talent show. When the song-and-dance act that she and her two best friends are rehearsing looks like it will be a disaster, the old take-charge Louise makes a comeback and helps them improve their performance. The entertaining story teaches an important lesson about self-esteem. Black-and-white illustrations enhance the text, and the facial expressions of Louise's exasperated family are particularly entertaining. A nice chapter book for children ready for the next step after easy-readers.
