Lulu's Lunch by Camilla Reid, illustrated by Allie Busby (Children's, Picture book, 10E/10E)

February 2011, Bloomsbury
24 pages, Hardback
Review copy

Themes: Lunch, different food, fun

Summary from Bloomsbury
Join Lulu on her exciting edible day as she discovers sticky honey, a banana to peel, a picnic box to unpack and a brilliant finale – a plate full of spaghetti!

Nayuleska's reasons for loving Lulu...she is a happy child who enjoys eating different food (a good example for fussy eaters).

What are the illustrations like? Colourful in what looks like a felt tip pen style. 

Is the book interactive and/or are the illustrations engaging? Both. The book is clever with different textures for the reader to feel on various food, and I can easily see the topic of cooking and eating being discussed while reading the book. 

My favourite part was... the sticky honey over the yogurt - I'd never seen anything like it and it's really cool! 

The textured material used is durable so should survive rough handling.
