In Louise, The Adventures of a Chicken, Louise longs and longs for an adventure, and an adventure (or two or three) she gets. In Chapter 1, her adventure takes her on the high seas and she encounters mean and hungry pirates and narrowly escapes. In Chapter 2, her adventure takes her to the circus and narrowly escapes being eaten by a lion. In Chapter 3, Louise's adventure takes her to a bazaar full of vendors with fabulous wares and narrowly escapes being locked up in a cage. Throughout her long and weary adventures, Louise realizes there is really no place like home and her cozy henhouse. She sets out west for home and recounts all her many adventures...and then tucks herself into her nest and dreams of peaceful adventures.
