Lulu #2: Lulu and the Dog from the Sea

When Lulu’s family go on a seaside holiday, the last thing they expect to find is a stray dog living on the beach. Everyone in the town thinks the dog is trouble. “He’s a menace,” they say. But Lulu is sure that all he needs is a friend. And that he’s been waiting to meet someone just like her… Join animal-loving Lulu and her fluffy friends in this heartwarming series from the author of the Casson Family novels.

Recent reviews

  • When I first saw the book I thought that it was going to be good because I like dogs. From the very first page I thought Lulu and Mellie were nice. I liked that Mellie and Lulu had lots of pets. I liked it when the dog from the sea knocked the bins over and made a mess. I did not like it when the dog catchers where trying to get the dog from the sea. I liked the end because it was a very happy ending. I think everyone who likes animals and a happy ending would like this book.
