Summary
Meet Lulu Bell. Where there's Lulu, there's family, friends, animals and adventures galore! It's almost time for Lulu's little sister's birthday party. But there's a problem! A pony is running loose and Lulu and her dad, the local vet, have to rescue it. Can they find the pony? And what will happen if the naughty pony gets into more mischief at the party? It's lucky that Lulu has a plan! About the Lulu Bell series Lulu Bell is a fun-loving, sometimes bossy eight-year-old girl with long honey-coloured hair. She is the practical one in the family -- which is fortunate because the rest of the family is slightly zany. She has a sister called Rosie, who is six and loves wearing angel wings and sparkly shoes, and a three-year-old brother called Gus, who likes to wear his superhero suit, even in the bath. Lulu's dad, Dr Bell, is a busy vet, while her mum is an artist. The Bell family have lots of pets, including two dogs called Asha and Jessie, two ginger cats called Pickles and Pepper, some ducklings, and a rabbit. Their home in Manly is right behind the vet hospital, so Lulu helps her dad care for injured and orphaned animals including a baby possum and, in book one, a naughty runaway pony. What's next for Lulu Bell?

Review
Grades 1-3 Lulu Bell is an animal-lover whose family lives behind the animal hospital her veterinarian father runs. She is the eldest sister to six-year-old Rosie and baby brother Gus, a fun-loving toddler who constantly wears an insect costume and demands to be called “bug boy.” Lulu and her best friend Molly are helping prepare for Rosie’s mermaid-themed birthday party when a report of a loose pony on the highway comes to the animal hospital. Lulu and her dad rescue the pony and bring it back to the hospital, leaving it in the backyard. Rosie’s party is threatened when the pony eats the birthday cake, prompting Lulu to save the day with some quick thinking. Black-and-white illustrations complement the gentle story, the first in a series for young readers by Australian author Murrell (The Quest for the Sun Gem, 2012). Lulu is a clever, kind-hearted heroine in a bright and cheerful series where spirited, engaging characters will hook young readers and have them looking forward to future installments. -- Szwarek, Magan (Reviewed 03-01-2015) (Booklist, vol 111, number 13)
