From School Library Journal:

PreS-Gr 2–Villeneuve has created a sensitive tale about running away from home. Feeling neglected and ignored, Loula is sitting in a tree with her three favorite possessions and is happy to be away from her “mean, horrible, stinky” brothers. When Gilbert, the family's chauffeur, sees her, he looks up and asks, “What are you doing up in a tree?” She replies, “This is not a tree. This is AFRICA!” What follows is an afternoon of imaginary travel across oceans, jungles, deserts, and restaurants that serve grasshopper sandwiches and ostrich egg soufflé. After Gilbert leads her to a little island in the park that they pretend is Africa, they watch the sunset, and then a sleepy Loula is carried back home. The ink and watercolor illustrations have the classic look of Ludwig Bemelmans's “Madeline” series (Viking). Read this title as a part of  travel- or siblings-themed storytimes.–Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canadaα(c) Copyright 2013.

Book Description Kids Can Press, Canada, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Anne Villeneuve (illustrator). Language: English . Brand New Book. Loula has had ENOUGH of her TERRIBLE triplet brothers. She s leaving home and going to Africa! Though her quirky parents are too distracted to pay much attention to her plans, Loula has a good friend in the family chauffeur, Gilbert, who gently inquires, ?Mademoiselle, may I ask, why Africa Because!? Loula explains. ?Africa is far away, very far away, the farthest away I can get from my MEAN, HORRIBLE, STINKY brothers. Plus they are scared of snakes. And if they come, piranhas will eat them.? ?Well then, ? says Gilbert, ?I think Africa is the best destination.? So together, with the help of their imaginations, Loula and Gilbert travel over the sand, through the air and across the water to reach their own special island of Africa. Which, Loula happily discovers at the end of the day, is ?not so far away? from home. Award-winning Anne Villeneuve has created a lovable and memorable character in the irrepressible Loula, who enchants and inspires with her spunk and the unique way she approaches the challenges in her life. Villeneuve s artwork, loosely drawn and painted warmly with watercolors, is both witty and charming, just like her character. This is a wonderful story about independence and adventure that also offers a heartwarming example of the important role a caring adult can play in a child s life. It provides a terrific opportunity to discuss dealing with feelings and how to be resourceful when faced with things that are out of your control. Bookseller Inventory # AAS9781554539413
