Overview

Lula's Aunties want her to be a witch like them. But Lula prefers to study cookbooks rather than spellbooks (and hates to fly on a broom). Lula wants to be a famous chef. In desperation, the Aunties insist she try to make one last potion. Lula secretly adds her cooking flair and in true witchy fashion creates a brew that bewitches the entire town, and her Aunties too!
This fun rhyming tale transcends the typical Halloween story to appeal to cooks and "foodies" throughout the year.

The iPhone Mom
The illustrations in this app are gorgeous and it has the feel of a real picture book. ... I won’t spoil the ending of the story but I’ll tell you it’s a happy one and the message behind Lula’s Brew is great.

My daughters both loved this story about Lula and her wanting to be a chef. The rhyming words and the pace of the story are fun to zip right along. My favorite things about Lula’s Brew is that I can put it on for my toddler and it can be read to her by the author and all she has to do is swipe her finger across when the words stop, something that she has gotten quite good at. I recommend checking out Lula’s Brew on iTunes today it is a cute story and children really enjoy it.
Still Reading Kids Books!
Love this story of the little witch who wants to cook yummy stuff! Colors are wonderful. Dulemba doesn't talk down to the littlest readers and gives them a main character to love that has a mind of her own and uses it.

I could use some of Lula's stew at my house.

Hope to see more from this talented author/illustrator!

My 3 year old granddaughter was not at all interested in this book. It was not colorful enough and the story was not for her age. It is a cute rhyming story, but not for 3 year olds.

Lula is a young witch who has a problem. She does not want to be a witch; she wants to be a chef with her own restaurant. Lula hides her cookbooks under her bed. But Lula lives with her four Aunties who are witches dedicated to making Lula a successful witch. At the beginning of the story they are supervising Lula in preparing a brew to cast a magic spell on the town, but Lula sneaks in other ingredients when they are not looking. Soon a delicious aroma wafts across the town and its residents come knocking on the witches door to partake of the brew. When they demand seconds, Lula has an unusual request for them. Lula manages to cast her magic in a most peculiar way. This tale is beautifully illustrated. The text will have young children laughing. This is a cute Halloween story that is not scary and appropriate for preschoolers and children in the early elementary grades. Makes a nice read aloud in the classroom, bedtime story or a family share to celebrate the holiday.
