Read full description of the books Lulu and the Duck in the Park:Lulu and the Duck in the Park was quite the adventure. I found the book to be fun-loving, clever, and bright. I loved the educational component associated with the story and the diversity that was depicted through the presented relationships. I loved that Lulu was of ethnic origin. I thought this served as such a positive and had the potential to open up a huge door in terms of possibilities for children who quite often don't hear of minorities working with or caring for animals.
In this particular story, readers are introduced to Lulu, a sweet, little girl who has a great big heart for animals. We get to see how she cares for her animals, as well as find out the one thing she won't do with regard to her animals. We are also introduced to her family, her friends, and even her teacher. Ultimately, readers get to witness the delightfully funny lengths that Lulu goes to in order to educate others and keep her beloved animals safe.
My family and I will definitely be following Lulu on her future adventures.

Read information about the authorHilary McKay was born in Boston, Lincolnshire and is the eldest of four girls. From a very early age she read voraciously and grew up in a household of readers. Hilary says of herself as a child "I anaesthetised myself against the big bad world with large doses of literature. The local library was as familiar to me as my own home."
After reading Botany and Zoology at St. Andrew's University Hilary then went on to work as a biochemist in an Analysis Department. Hilary enjoyed the work but at the same time had a burning desire to write. After the birth of her two children, Hilary wanted to devote more time to bringing up her children and writing so decided to leave her job.
One of the best things about being a writer, says Hilary, is receiving letters from children. She wishes that she had written to authors as a child, but it never occurred to her to contact them
Hilary now lives in a small village in Derbyshire with her family. When not writing Hilary loves walking, reading, and having friends to stay.
