Lulu is a pain and she never likes to hear the word no. Her parents give her everything because she throws screeching fits when things don't go her way. However, when Lulu leaves home to find a pet brontosaurus, her perspective begins to change. Lulu meets her brontosaurus, but he wants to keep HER for a pet and he doesn't like to hear no any more than Lulu does.
This delightful battle of wills is a perfect transition to chapter books. Lulu and her brontosaurus are entertaining characters for both parents and children. The illustrations by Lane Smith add even more charm to an already wonderful story. The language is the right level for early readers and the short chapters and pages with minimal text give struggling readers a feeling of success. The fun story is also a great family read aloud.
