Synopsis

Lulu's Magic Wand by Chuck Richards

A trip to Adventure Planet turns into a fantastical adventure for Lulu and her family. When Lulu's dad wins her a special prize, she picks the sparkly magic wand-only to find out that this is a real magic wand and every wish is now Lulu's command. When her imagination runs wild, so does the amusement park as the merry go round comes to life, cotton candy sprouts all over, and the roller coaster turns into a giant snake! Before long the park is in chaos and it's up to Lulu's brother and sister to stop her magic wand. Can they find Lulu and return the park to normal?

Reviews

Praise for Critter Sitter Illustrations cleverly mix realism with humorous exaggeration. -School Library Journal Richards's illustrations are comically endearing and expertly drive the rollicking story. -Kirkus Reviews Praise For Jungle Gym Jitters Lively and spontaneous, page after exuberant page... it is Chuck Richards's marvelous drawings - constantly surprising, consistently engaging and madly thrilling- that triumph in the end. -New York Times Book Review Equal parts Chris Van Allsburg, Arthur Geisert and M.C. Escher, the stunningly accomplished art makes for a riveting read. -Kirkus Reviews The intricate, innovative pictures are a melange of images that invites kids to keep looking. -Booklist
