Review:
A summer of fun is rehashed as two children try to decide how to spend Lulu's birthday. This elderly relative has taken the children to so many wonderful places that she agrees with each new suggestion they make. Finally, the children take the decision into their own hands. Filled with familial warmth and love, this gentle story is perfect for small children who will identify with favorite outings. The text is brightened by the illustrations that show a subplot occurring outside Lulu's window.
