Lulu was an only child who was use to getting her way. Her birthday was coming and she wanted a brontosaurus for a pet. When her parents told her that she may not have a brontosaurus she screeched till the light bulbs burst and threw herself on the ground where she kicked and waved her arms. Normally, this would persuade her parents to give in, but not that time. Lulu packed her bags and storms out of the house in search of her brontosaurus. As her journey begins and progresses Lulu learns some valuable lessons and grows-up along the way. This book was very easy to read and had excellent illustrations. I would recommend this book as a transition for children who are starting to read chapter books in 1st and 2nd grade. Overall, the theme of the story is to treat others the way you would like to be treated which is a valuable lesson for kids at any age.

The book itself is halarious but the timouts, chapter one and a half, overtime, skiping chapters. You just can't get a enough of it.

Lulu is an only child that wants her way.She will screech till the lightbulbs go out and throws fits with kicking and screaming. She wants a brontosaurous for a pet but her parents say no so she goes out of the house and looks for a brontosaurous.It is a good book for all ages and it teaches kids a lesson not to screech and throw fits while kicking and screaming.

This book has wonderful illustrations for that reader who still needs visuals. It is a circle story that works its way back to the beginning. It is a great story with a good moral.

I fell in love with Judith Viorst's Lulu and the Brontosaurus! It is a good book for a group of children learning to read chapter books and an ideal book for children who love to have someone read aloud to them. The illustrations added greatly to the story and plot. My fourth graders and I read it in one sitting, and the humor kept their attention from start to finish. I knew my students were "into" the book because of their giggles and the way the work appealed to their fourth grade collective sense of humor. The main character, Lulu, changes from the beginning to the end from a spoiled, bad mannered, ill-tempered child to one who has learned more appropriate manners when dealing with others. Lulu even learns the "P Word" or "please" throughout this work. I felt like the author, while telling the story, also inserts several "asides" as if she were there with my students and me reading the book with us! This was a charming and helpful feature! My students LOVED the choice of three endings, and my students voted on their favorite ending as a group. I highly recommend this book for all!
