It's Lulu's birthday and she's decided she'd like a pet brontosaurus as a present. But when Lulu's parents tell her that's not possible, Lulu gets veryupset. She does not like it when things don't go her way. So taking matters into her own hands Lulu storms off into the forest to find herself a new pet, all the way singing: I'm gonna, I'm gonna, I'm gonna, gonna, get a bronto-bronto-bronto-bronto-saurus for a pet! In the forest Lulu encounters a number of animals: a snake, a tiger, a bear, all of whom don't particularly impress her. And then she finds him... a beautiful, long-necked, gentle, graceful brontosaurus. And he completely agrees with Lulu that having a pet would be a wonderful thing indeed! Lulu thinks she's finally got her birthday wish. Until she realises that Mr Brontosaurus thinks that shewould make an ideal pet for him! How will Lulu ever get out of this sticky situation without throwing a fit (Mr B does not respond well to those), or using force (Mr B is much too tall to bonk on the head with her suitcase), or smushing her sandwich?
Lulu spends the first half of the book being bossy and abusive to everyone around her, from her parents to strangers she meets in the forest. So it's difficult to feel sorry for her when things don't go her way.

Later she bribes the forest dwellers to leave her alone. Although she's learned to say "please" she never bothers to apologize. Lulu assumes that there will be birthday cake ready whenever she decides to come home, and guess what - there is. She seems just as bossy at the end of the story, like when she tells her parents that Mr B will be staying for cake and lemonade.

The author keeps up a defensive running argumentative commentary with the readers, telling us to keep our comments to ourselves because *she* is the author, and she'll tell the story how she wants to tell it. I'm not sure how this will work when we're reading the book to kids... This appears to only be a device so that at then end she can admit that she doesn't know everything about Lulu (since she's "just the person who's writing this story").

The multiple-endings idea is interesting, and I'm interested to see how this plays with kid readers.

The illustrations are interesting - I enjoy all the textures in hair, tree bark, brontosaurus skin. My favorite part of the book was discovering a bat asleep in a hole in a tree.
I am a substitute teacher for lower elementary grades. I always attempt to bring a super-great read aloud book that the class has not heard. This tale of a little bratty girl who goes into the forest to find a brontosaurus for her birthday gift, is hilarious. It has a catchy little song running through the story, which the kids learned and loved very quickly. It also has an unusual format, with super-short chapters and a choose-your-own ending feature. Because it is longer than most read-alouds, this book with its short mini-chapters, almost creates an introductory chapter book for this age group; . Can be read effectively in two periods, so was very effective for two-day visits. Students couldn't wait to hear the rest of the story the next day. Through use with many classes, I've cut some unnecessary portions of the story which are a little repetitious, enabling it to be read in one read-aloud session. Extremely successful choice. So glad I found it. Good job, Judith Viorst!
My 4 year old daughter was entranced by this book. The storyline drew her in and the Brontosaurus song has become a fun addition to our silly songs collection. While other reviewers took issue with Lulu's bratty behavior, I disagree. Yes, Lulu behaves poorly, but the book reinforces the message that you ultimately need to learn to accept no for an answer. Her initial poor behavior creates an opportunity to talk about bad vs. good behaviors and reinforce the expectations of your own home. This is a fun book that can be read repeatedly. I highly recommend it.
Was recommended by a children's lit expert whom I respect, but I did not like this story and did not share with my granddaughter. I need a more likeable main character.
This is one of my all-time favorite books! I work as a library aide for LAUSD and I almost can't check this book out to kids, I love it so much, that I hoard it! Just bought two more copies so I wouldn't be so greedy with it :). So well written, every page is a jewel. The kids from 3rd all the way to 5th just love this book also. I thought 5th would be too old for this book, but a class came in last week and asked specifically if I would continue reading from LULU. It's funny, grabs you right away, has a wonderful message, with interesting pictures by Lane Smith. What else could you ask for?

I can't believe there aren't a million review for this book saying how great it is. Well, I'm telling you, it is wonderful.

Buy it! You won't regret it!!
One of my second grade students asked me to read this to the class.

I did.

The class LOVED it.

Absolutely love it.

I now have a new second grade, in a different school.

The first book I bought for my new class?

"Lulu and The Brontosaurus"!
I read the reviews and bought this book for my six year old, who loves reading. I didn't really put too much thought into it because he just wanted a new book for our night-time routine. He started reading it one night, with a little help, but it was too close to bedtime, so we stopped half-way. Well, he didn't wait for me to get up the next morning, he couldn't wait to read the other half, so he continued by himself. I had never seen this kind of impact from a book on a little child. Awesome!
The best read aloud! My first graders love this book!
