Lulu and her daddy love to go to the library together. Lulu loves stories, each night she reads a different one, and the next day they inspire her play. She becomes a fairy, a pilot, a farmer, a mummy, a tiger and a monster! What will Lulu be next?
The irrepressible Lulu returns in another book-loving story, superbly illustrated by Rosalind Beardshaw. There is plenty here – Dad as primary carer and a girl who can switch between fairy and DIY expert effortlessly!
Librarians and teachers are all too aware of the importance of having multicultural faces in books unfortunately, many of these have been somewhat dull. With the wonderful Lulu books, we have characters so exuberantly and joyously portrayed in words and pictures that the diversity is not what one first notices.
-THE READING ZONE
The paintings are charming, Lulu is a delight… an audio CD which has an introduction followed by the story being read in English and then in each of 18 other languages. As a family sharing or as a teaching or library activity resources this is both delicious and full of wonderful possibilities.’
