Lady Lulu does not just like to liter, she loves it. Lady Lulu also likes to think she is above the law. The whole town cannot reason with her. She even is not interested in hearing sound reasoning from her sister and brother. That all changes one day when a little fleck of lint sends her litter mountain into a landslide of garbage. This story has an important message about littering. It illustrates the connection between action and consequence. It has clever alliteration, specially focusing on the letter ‘l'. There are also silly rhymes which turn the reading into one big tongue twister and a fun read for children and their caregivers. There is repetition which is helpful for early readers. The watercolor-and-ink illustrations follow the story and add some interesting details for the reader to observe. Lady Lulu looks quite snazzy with her spectacles but is rather sloppy.
