This is one of the most heartfelt, involving books I have read in quite a while--and I'm a grandmother! This novel has inspired me to truly listen to Louis Armstrong's music and to even visit his home, which is a museum in Queens, and which I heartily recommend. From the lovely relationship of the father and son, Big Fred and Little Fred, to young Fred's struggles with stage fright, prejudice, and the death of his mother, T I simply can't see why anyone would give this remarkable novel one star!
From the lovely relationship of the father and son, Big Fred and Little Fred, to young Fred's struggles with stage fright, prejudice, and the death of his mother, Travels With Louis packs quite a punch--but in an understated, non-pretentious way. In addition, the fictional character of Louis Armstrong is as close as one can get to the real man.
This novel, too, never gives in to stereotype. For instance, the character of Little Fred fails magnificently several times, and almost gives up his dream of playing music, before tasting success. Also, I like the way the widowed father, Big Fred, does not dive into romance with the singer Sarah Ann--instead he opts for simple friendship.
It's touches like these that make Travels With Louis such a special story. I mentioned this in my discussion post, but I also love the gentle message conveyed in a subtle way by the author: Do not disparage a peer because of body weight; face prejudice with anger--but never violence; that a true man eschews alcohol to become the finest father he can be; that life throws all of us unimaginable pain, yet we must keep on living with dignity and joy.
All of this--and a free trip to London and Paris, too! I gave my copy to my granddaughter and she said yesterday: "I just downloaded some Louis tunes into my iPod, Grandma.
View 1 comment. Jul 08, Lisa rated it it was amazing. This is a totally different novel from Carlon's first. To begin, it's narrated in the third person, focusing on the relationship of a recently widowed father, Big Fred, and his son, Little Fred. Both are dealing with grief the best they can.
This novel is filled with heart, humor, travel, and gritty reality: Little Fred's first encounter with the ugliness of racism, as well as a lunch-counter sit-down demonstration in Nashville, is both powerful and enraging. Armstrong emerges from this novel as a good-hearted, brave, humorous, and dedicated to music and his friends man--a truly well-rounded character.
Little Fred, through interior monologue, is a real, breathing boy. The way he and his best friends "bust each others' chops" is perfectly described. They sound like the boys in my childhood neighborhood. The side plot of Little Fred overcoming stage fright in order to play with Louis and his All-Stars on a Parisian stage is handled with a deft touch--but it's the details that make this story. My favorite character is Big Fred: still aching from his wife's death from breast cancer , this good man is determined to be the father to his son that his own father never was.
Long after I finished my galley advanced copy, I can still see the good man, sitting in his favorite chair in his living room, a standing lamp behind him, reading his evening newspapers. Carlon has written a powerful and beautiful story, perfect for young readers and adults. I hope this book becomes part of America's middle school curriculum. Jan 19, Deb 64 rated it it was amazing.
In one chapter he is called the despicable n-word by a white woman. The boy's reaction brought tears to my eyes because it mirrored my own feelings when confronted with this word when I was a girl. I found so much to love here--a hobo who tells Fred an absolutely fascinating and as I learned, true story about Teddy R We just read Travels With Louis in our book club, and I must say that I loved it.

Friends who tease each other mercilessly, but who care for each other. But I especially loved Big Fred, the boy's father, who is bravely raising his son after his wife's death.
What a fine man! And I haven't even mentioned Louis Armstrong yet!
The people in my book group all said that this book made them either dig out their old Satchmo albums or buy new Armstrong tunes to put into their Ipods.
