Lulu Bell is a tween who lives with her artisitc mother and veterinary father, her sister Rosie and her brother Gus (better known as Bug Boy). In this story it is Rosie’s birthday and preparations are underway for her mermaid themed party until a stray pony throughs plans out.

Lulu is creative, kind and witty. She loves her younger siblings. Her best friend Molly has equally good attributes.

The story is an easy read, it has excitement, drama and more than a dab of humor. Serena Geddes illustrations are charming and perfectly capture both the characters and the storyline.

This is the first in a series and I look forward to spending more time in the world of Lulu Bell.
