Follow-up to the New York Times Bestselling Raymie Nightingale, from an internationally revered author, twice winner of the Newbery Medal. When Louisiana Elefante's granny wakes her up in the middle of the night to tell her that the day of reckoning has arrived and they have to leave home immediately, Louisiana isn't overly worried. After all, Granny has many middle-of-the-night ideas. But this time, things are different. This time, Granny intends for them never to return. Separated from best friends Raymie and Beverly, Louisiana struggles to oppose the winds of fate (and Granny) and find a way home. But as Louisiana's life becomes entwined with the lives of the people of the small Georgia town in which they find themselves - including a surly motel owner, a walrus-like minister and a mysterious boy with a crow on his shoulder - she starts to worry that she is destined only for goodbyes. (Which could be due to the curse on Louisiana's and Granny's heads. But that is a story for another time.) Called "one of DiCamillo's most singular and arresting creations" by The New York Times Book Review, the heartbreakingly irresistible Louisiana Elefante was introduced to readers in Raymie Nightingale - and now, with humour and tenderness, Kate DiCamillo returns to tell her story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Thoughtful, compassionate, elegant and simply beautiful; you will never forget Louisiana's Way Home. An instant classic!" * Fallen Star Stories *
"DiCamillo's writing is like a constant blanket of loveliness and safety." * John O'Groat Journal *
"This is a beautifully written story - funny and moving - exploring some tough perceptions about the adult world and coming to terms with shortcomings and strengths. The simple text and short chapters will make this easily accessible to the young reader but there is a keenness of thought and sharp insights into life that make it appropriate for the older reader too." * The School Librarian *

“Delicious & delightful”
