I read this book, Loula is Leaving for Africa, to my daughter, and we both found it very funny. Loula is upset when her triplet brothers bother her, and she decides she has had enough and is leaving to go to Africa. She packs up and heads out, but she realizes that she doesn't know how to get to Africa. Her mother's chauffeur knows the way, and he spends the day "taking" Loula to Africa.
I really loved this book. Every child gets frustrated at some point and says that they are leaving or running away. Anne Villeneuve depicted that perfectly, and I loved the imagination throughout the book. I also loved that there was an adult there with Loula helping her along the way, eventually taking her home in the end.
