Lulu and Bob by Lerryn Korda
Lulu lives in a lovely house with her mummy, her daddy and Percy the cat. Her life is full of Terribly Important rules and Lulu knows that she must try and be on her Very Best Behaviour at all times. Then one day a very unusual person called Bob appears...filling Lulu's world with adventure, excitement, and a lot of mischief.
A great book for children everywhere who like to have fun, play games but don't like tidying up afterwards! Is it really them that make all the mess, or is there someone else who does that??
The book is very well presented, each page has limited text, in a clear bold print with beautiful pictures. The pictures have a range of styles for different components of the big picture - some appear to be computer generated, while others have a hand drawn style, others are only outlined. Together they have a great effect. The pictures will capture a young child's imagination.
The story is well written and will be loved by children of all ages. A lovely gift to give and a lovely story to share at story or bedtime.
Thank you to Scholastic for sending me the book to review.
