    One thought on “Lulu Walks the Dogs”

    1. This is the second collaboration between Judith Viorst and Lane Smith featuring a little girl named Lulu. Have I mentioned that I love Judith Viorst's books? I've read several of her children's books with our girls and I've read all of her books about the decades of a woman's life. She is such a witty and candid writer, and I love the way that she can really speak to people - young and old. As a parent, I really appreciate that she can tell an entertaining tale while still weaving a lesson about [...]

    2. Move over Lucy Van Pelt, there's a new kid on the block and she's just as selfish and bratty as you. Meet Lulu. Big head, big mouth, big ideas. She doesn't run a psychiatry booth like Lucy of Peanuts fame, but she does run a dog walking business and I haven't loved a character this much since well, Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang. So many things reminded me of Peanuts from the pictures to the characters. The running gag on the poodle called, Pookie, doing "what she's supposed to do" to Lulu i [...]

    3. Except for Alexander's [bad] Day, I do not like Viorst. I feel like I should, but I don't. I can see that some folks would love this little brat as she very gradually learns to be less self-centered, and like the humor that's sassy, sarcastic, etc but I don't. The best bit for me is the cover. Back to a LFL it goes!

    4. First sentence: Lulu--remember Lulu?--used to always be a pig pain, till she met Mr. B, a lovely brontosaurus. Now she is just a sometimes pain, and not nearly as rude as before. Premise/plot: Lulu wants something, and she's determined to get it. Her parents tell her: if you want it, start earning money and save it. Her idea for how to make money quick? To start her own dog-walking business in the neighborhood. The problem? She doesn't know a thing about dogs, and, well, her dog-skills aren't th [...]

    5. I did not like this book because I do not like annoying people. I enjoyed this book because I liked the part when Fleischman helped Lulu. I also enjoyed this book because I liked the part when Fleischman untied Lulu from a tree.

    6. Lulu Walks the Dogs is the sequel to Lulu and the Brontosaurus but stands alone just fine. I have not had the chance to read Lulu and the Brontosaurus though that did not stop me from picking up Lulu Walks the Dogs which is its own amusing story that readers of all ages can appreciate.This is without a doubt, one of the most entertaining middle grade novels your child will read this year. Viorst provides laugh out loud humor, short chapters, and a firecracker character to keep us on our toes. Bu [...]

    7. Lulu is back! After her adventures in Lulu and the Brontosaurus with Mr. B she has vowed not to be as big of a pain but only a sometimes pain. In this adventure Lulu wants a super special thing. Her parents tell her no over and over no matter what strategies Lulu uses to convince them. The finally tell her she will have to pay for it herself. So what is Lulu going to do? Walk dogs of course. Does Lulu know anything about dogs? Not a thing but how hard can it be? Lulu gets three dog walking jobs: [...]

    8. Lulu wants something (we are not told what), and her parents are going to make her earn the money for it. They point out that that nice boy, Fleischman, does all sorts of odd jobs, so she can, too. She approaches Fleischman to tell him that she won't encroach on his jobs if he doesn't encroach on hers, and proceeds to round up jobs walking dogs. Her mother goes with her to the homes, where she meets three dogs who seem to like her, and she starts her business. Things don't go smoothly, and Fleis [...]

    9. I absolutely love the Lulu books. They're so much fun to read. They're so comical and author often speaker directly to the reader to give explanations. In this book Lulu wants to earn some money and does so walking dogs in the neighborhood. Fleischman a neighbor kid offers to help her but she doesn't think she needs it and harsh as always she tries to blow him off. After 3 weeks of him putting up with her he finally decides enough is enough That's when she really realizes how valuable and useful [...]

    10. Lulu and the Brontosaurus was lightning in a bottle - a charming and slim little chapter book that makes a terrific read aloud for kids in grades 1-3. Lulu Walks the Dog tries hard to recapture the magic, but falls short. It is still cute, and kids who loved the first Lulu book will like this one too, but it isn't nearly as charming.

    11. Lulu's adventures are much more pedestrian in this, her second book, but no less funny. Lulu may or may not have learned her lesson from the brontosaurus, as she gives her new money making venture a try.Judith Viorst's narrative voice in these Lulu books makes them deliciously easy to read aloud, and guarantees an appreciative listening audience (at least in my household.)

    12. Lulu Walks the Dogs by Judith Viorst, illustrated by Lane Smith – loved this book as much as the first one (Lulu and the Brontosaurus) Enjoyed the instroduction of new characters, job, dogs, and how characters who aren’t friendly, at all, learn how to get along.

    13. Lulu is back and this time she wants to buy a very special thing. But her parents said she would need to buy it herself. So Lulu decides that she will walk dogs, but Lulu is not very good with dogs. I can't wait to share the Lulu books with my little one.

    14. Lulu, a kind of bull-in-a-china-shop type of girl, has been unable to convince her parents to buy her a certain something that she REALLY REALLY wants. Having tried everything she can think of, Lulu is finally told that she could earn the money herself, like the neighborhood "perfect" boy, Fleischman. Lulu is not a Fleischman fan, mostly because he is everything she is not: polite, sweet, kind, helpful. After Lulu informs Fleischman that she will not do any of the jobs he does, she insists that [...]

    15. So, apparently I'm reading the Lulu books in opposite ordery the first one to go!!Lulu is a hoot! A self-absorbed willful child who must learn every thing the hard waye really hard way.She wants money -- lots of money. She wants to do something even better than her arch-enemy, Fleishmann, Mr. Perfect. She decided to walk dogs before school. Her three clients probably should not be walked together, but don't try to tell that to Lulu. In fact, don't try to tell ANYTHING to Lulu. That's not the way [...]

    16. Hey guys, do you like dogs? This sequel is all about Lulu walking dogs to earn money for something really expensive & very mysterious! There is a new character now called: Fleischman. And yes, that's his first name. Lulu thinks that Fleischman is perfect, irritating & a goodie-goodie, but Fleischman is only trying to help Lulu. Lulu goes door to door trying to get dogs to walk, and ends up with 3 dogs! However, these dogs are not easy to take care of. For example, if you say one of the d [...]

    17. I enjoyed this book. It is the first Lulu story I have read, and I was pleasantly surprised by the humor in the story. Plus, I really enjoy the author talking to the reader intermittently through the story. Lulu reminds me of Junie B. Jones, and I think would appeal to other students who are having a hard time finding another fun, spunky character to read after Junie.

    18. I loved this book so much it was so relaxing and intertaining it was fun to read. It was fun to read.I would consider giving this book to my family to read too.I liked the part when Lulu was tied up and Sherman told her that he wasn't perfect and why.I chose this rating because i felt like it was fit for me and my parents and I enjoyed reading it.

    19. LuLu is a spoiled brat. But her parents will not give in to demands, so she has has to earn money to buy what she wants. Cleverly written, some illustrations which will help new to chapter book readers with the story.

    20. Another nice one of Lulu's series!! I like the story itself. I especially like how Lulu and her "sidekick" Fleischman recognized each other's strengths and weaknesses and reconciled with each other. Lulu's dream revealed in the end surprisingly correlates with nowadays space exploration theme.

    21. Another book I saw on a book review email. I found two characters and the narrator annoying. I give this one a meh.

    22. In the second Lulu book, Lulu gets a job walking dogs. Except she doesn’t know anything about dogs, so she needs a little help - but she doesn’t want to accept advice from her know-it-all neighbor.

    23. Lulu is ridiculous - sassy, bratty, spoiled, rude. I love her (and so will beginning readers starting to bridge from early readers to chapter books).

    24. While Lulu is a rude pain, the writing is great fun and I loved reading the spurts of chapters. Would look for other Lulu books for sure :)
