Lulu comes across as a reasonable child: “What are we going to do, Jupiter?” she wonders. “I can’t play with everybody!” Her philanthropic solution, the Great Toy Giveaway, may not be embraced by every reader, yet it serves as a practical conversation-starter.
—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Children will be captivated by the later pictures of all those toys, individually good-natured little dolls and animals that become an overwhelming crowd cavorting about Lulu’s room at bedtime. A good read-aloud choice, this picture book leaves children with something to think about as well.
A polished debut for this British author/illustrator, who might invent more challenges for the newly minimalist Lulu.
