Product Description

First in a warm and funny series for younger readers by the multi-award-winning Hilary McKay, author of the Casson Family novels.

Lulu has so many pets that everyone calls her Lulu the Zookeeper. She can’t understand people who don’t like animals – people like her teacher, Mrs Holiday. When Lulu tries to help Mrs Holiday to find her perfect pet, she is banned from bringing an animal to school ever again! But when Lulu rescues a lost duck egg, she has to take it to school to keep it safe. She’s not really breaking the rules. It’s just an egg, after all. But trouble is about to hatch out…

Praise for Hilary McKay:

“Quirky and curious… unforgettable. The central characters are strong, lovable – and unique.” The Bookseller

“Here’s a book that truly proves the joys to be had from reading.” Books for Keeps

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.
