Lulu and the Duck in the Park
by Hilary McKay
illustrated by Priscilla Lamont
Chicago : Albert Whitman, 2012
104 pages, intermediate chapter book
Lulu loves all animals! She tries really hard to find the perfect pet
for her teacher and as a result is banned from bringing any animals to
school ever again! Lulu intends to do just that until one day the class
is on a field trip and she saves a duck egg abandoned when a group of
dogs attack. After all, an egg isn’t really an animal…yet. But will her
teacher agree with her?
One of my top 10 picks for intermediate chapter books of 2012.
