Out of the mouths of babes (2)

Today's Out of the mouths of babes comes to us from "Lulu" (5th grade).  She chose to recommend..
Lulu and the Brontosaurus
Lulu and the Brontosaurus by Judith Viorst
(From amazon):  I’m gonna, I’m gonna, I’m gonna, gonna, get a bronto-bronto-bronto-brontosaurus for a pet!
Lulu always gets what she wants. Until now. When she asks for a pet brontosaurus as her birthday present, for the first time ever her parents say “No!” and no amount of fit-throwing can change their minds. Taking matters into her own hands, Lulu storms off into the forest. After a few fierce encounters with meddlesome creatures, she finally finds him—a beautiful, long-necked, graceful brontosaurus. Mr. B. completely agrees that having a pet would be a wonderful thing, but he thinks she would be a perfect pet for him! Could Lulu have met her match?
Beloved children’s author Judith Viorst and Caldecott-winning illustrator Lane Smith offer an irresistibly fresh and funny story with an ending full of surprises!
Our very own "Lulu" writes:  My favorite book is Lulu and the Brontosaurus because there is a girl who beats up all the toughest animals then she goes back in the end and says sorry to all the animals.
