The purpose of a story
Reviewed in the United States on August 9, 2017
This book doesn't have a "story" to tell in any sense of the word. It is basically a play-by-play telling of what Lulu does when she goes to school: she makes her lunch, she meets her teacher, they practice flying on their brooms, she meets a girl she doesn't like, she gets lizard pocks and so does the other girl, they count each other's pocks. The End.
It is the equivalent of me writing a book about what I did at work: I went to work, said hi to my co-workers, one of them made me laugh at his joke, typed some things into the computer, ate lunch, had a meeting, went home. The End.
Not only did I find it boring, so did my child. If you want to motivate your child to read, they need to try and read a story that makes them want to turn the page. This book will make your child's eyes glaze over after the first two pages.
