Meet Lulu Bell. Where there's Lulu, there's family, friends, animals and adventures galore!
It's almost time for Lulu's little sister's birthday party. But there's a problem! A pony is running loose and Lulu and her dad, the local vet, have to rescue it.
Can they find the pony? And what will happen if the naughty pony gets into more mischief at the party? It's lucky that Lulu has a plan!
About the Lulu Bell series
Lulu Bell is a fun-loving, sometimes bossy eight-year-old girl with long honey-coloured hair. She is the practical one in the family - which is fortunate because the rest of the family is slightly zany.
She has a sister called Rosie, who is six and loves wearing angel wings and sparkly shoes, and a three-year-old brother called Gus, who likes to wear his superhero suit, even in the bath.
Lulu's dad, Dr Bell, is a busy vet, while her mum is an artist. The Bell family have lots of pets, including two dogs called Asha and Jessie, two ginger cats called Pickles and Pepper, some ducklings, and a rabbit. Their home in Manly is right behind the vet hospital, so Lulu helps her dad care for injured and orphaned animals including a baby possum and, in book one, a naughty runaway pony.
