In Where’s Lulu, a short fun book for very young children, Lulu’s hiding from her Mum, she doesn’t want to go out. But why is it she doesn’t want to go out? Find out more in this fun short picture book. Can you see her on each page?

This book teaches children about the fun of books, taking books and returning them to the library, and plays an interactive game of hide and seek on the pages as we go. What more could you ask for in a combination of fun and learning?
