The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is another lovely and inspiring adventure for Lulu, one of the busiest and most positive little girls in picture books. Lulu loves cats, we can see that from her bedroom which is full of cuddly cat toys, but Mummy says that looking after a real one is lots of work. They take a trip to the library to find books about caring for cats, and Lulu starts to practice at home. When she proves to Mummy that she’s ready to take on cat ownership, they go to the cat shelter, where Lulu meets that cat that will become hers. Lulu is a little girl we can all look up to and this brims with her enthusiasm, effort and excitement, as well as a wonderfully warm sense of happy family life. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Lulu Gets a Cat by Anna McQuinn

Lulu really wants a cat. But Mummy says pets are a lot of work, so Lulu is eager to find out more... She reads all about cats and the library. She takes care of her stuffed toys and shows Mummy how responsible she can be. When she finally gets to adopt a little cat of her own, Lulu knows just what to do.

Lulu does a great job of finding out how to care for cats and how to be responsible before she gets her little cat. If you would like to find out more about how to look after your cat or what to think about when adopting a cat, the National Cats Adoption Cenre is a great place to get information: www.cats.org.uk/learn
