Product Description

Discover the adorably cheeky exploits of the fresh-faced yet mischievous Lulu, whose love of animals is always causing havoc! Animals seem to surround Lulu wherever she goes. People even call her Lulu the Zookeeper! At home, a marigold-coloured cat is dumped on her doorstep. At the seaside, she befriends a stray dog whom nobody else trusts. And at school, she finds herself in trouble when a duck egg starts to hatch – under the nose of her teacher, who detests animals! Heart-melting fiction for younger readers by the hugely acclaimed author of the Casson Family novels.

Hilary McKay

Hilary McKay was born in Boston, Lincolnshire and is the eldest of four girls. From a very early age she read voraciously and grew up in a household of readers. Hilary says of herself as a child “I anaesthetised myself against the big bad world with large doses of literature. The local library was as familiar to me as my own home.”

After reading Botany and Zoology at St. Andrew’s University Hilary then went on to work as a biochemist in an Analysis Department. Hilary enjoyed the work but at the same time had a burning desire to write. After the birth of her two children, Hilary wanted to devote more time to bringing up her children and writing so decided to leave her job.

One of the best things about being a writer, says Hilary, is receiving letters from children. She wishes that she had written to authors as a child, but it never occurred to her to contact them!

Hilary has written many books but is probably best known for the award-winning Casson family series.

Hilary now lives in a small village in Derbyshire with her family. When not writing Hilary loves walking, reading, and having friends to stay.
