Lulu's Birthday

Written by Elizabeth Fitzgerald Howard, Illustrated by Pat Cummings

Greenwillow Books


During the summer, Laurie and J. Matthew spent many happy hours on trips to the beach, the zoo, the ballet, the movies, and the baseball game with Lulu, their lively, gray-haired friend. Now she wants to celebrate her birthday with them by revisiting on of these places. Together, they reminisce about their good times there, but the children have something else planned. They blindfold Lulu and walk her in circles back to her own home where her family and neighborhood friends wait with the special cake that the youngsters made at Aunt Flossie's house.
