Read full description of the books:
Louie really is just about the perfect picture book character, easy to relate to in a quiet, understated way that comes about as a result of the equally quiet, understated pictures made by Ezrea Jack Keats. No reader will be unable to identify with Louie's apprehension about his new apartment, away from his old friends and all of the familiar elements about his former neighborhood that he lad learned to cherish through time. Louie allows his imagination to soar into the past, though, and once again for a brief moment to touch those things that he used to love; yet when he returns, life goes on for him, and he perhaps begins to see that there will be things that he can learn to love where he is right now, if he lets himself begin anew.
The Trip is a nice picture book in the famous style of Ezra Jack Keats, appealing to all ages for both its story and pictures.

Read information about the authorFROM WEBSITE:
Long before multicultural characters and themes were fashionable, Ezra Jack Keats crossed social boundaries by being the first American picture-book maker to give the black child a central place in children’s literature.
In the books that Keats wrote and illustrated, he used his special artistic techniques to portray his subjects in a unique manner. One of these was his blending of gouache with collage. Gouache is an opaque watercolor mixed with a gum that produces an oil-like glaze.
The characters in Keats’ books come from the community around him. Many of his stories illustrate family life, the simple pleasures and more complex problems, that a child often encounters in his daily routine. To create his books, Keats drew upon his own childhood experiences, from having to flee from bullies to taking a ribbing from his pals for liking girls. But these are also the experiences of almost all children growing up in neighborhoods and communities in many parts of the world. This commonality explains the continuing popularity of Keats’ books and characters.
By the time of Keats’ death following a heart attack in 1983, Keats had illustrated over eighty-five books for children, and written and illustrated twenty-four children’s classics.
