Book Review - Lula's Brew
Lula's Aunties want her to be a witch like them. But Lula would rather study cookbooks than spell books (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 creates a brew that bewitches the entire town, including her Aunties! This fun rhyming tale transcends the typical Halloween story to appeal to cooks and "foodies" throughout the year.
My Take on the Book
I so enjoyed reading this story by Elizabeth O. Dulemba. The author has combined engaging rhyme in the text with detailed illustrations. The faces on the characters will bring additional pleasure while you read this story to your child.
This engaging story develops well with Lula's auntie witches wanting her to create spells and become a real witch. Lula has other plans to become a chef and own a restaurant. Lula tricks her auntie witches and her challenging spell episodes in the house , turn into success with food. Even her auntie witches decide to assist Lula with her new adventure, her own restaurant.
This such a fun story to read!
Make sure you visit Elizabeth O. Dulemba's web sit which she includes at the end of the book. She provides puzzles, computer wallpaper, and the actual recipe for Lula's brew. Enjoy it all.
