Lulu is a very spoiled little girl who always gets what she wants. “Tons of candy. Tons of toys. Tons of watching tons of cartoons on TV.” Until one day when Lulu decides that she wants a brontosaurus for her birthday. When her parents finally refuse her, Lulu packs a suitcase full of things like pickle sandwiches and heads into the forest to find that brontosaurus.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading about Lulu’s adventure and all that she learns along the way. The ending has a few fun surprises to delight young readers and whimsical illustrations to enjoy along the way. Written by Judith Viorst, a beloved children’s author, who has written other outstanding books like “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day”.
