A wonderful junior reader. Murrell writes with a warmth that immediately draws in the reader and encourages them to share in the excitement of Lulu’s day . . . There are some lovely moments in this novel, and the familiarity of the situations will make the story particularly accessible to younger readers . . . Lulu Bell and the Birthday Unicorn will be enjoyed by children aged six and up.

Fun-loving Lulu Bell is my kind of girl! . . . With engaging characters, both human and animal (and inspired by the author's own life growing up in a vet hospital), this series' focus on the everyday adventures of a quirky but very lovable family is sure to win Belinda Murrell a new legion of fans.

These first two books in the Lulu Bell series are adorably cute and ideal for bedtime or rainy afternoon reading with the family . . . Six year old Tia loved both books, declaring that the stories were exciting, and the details were very important to her enjoyment of the books . . . In the Birthday Unicorn, Lulu’s little sister Rosie is having a birthday party and Dad has to search for a lost pony. As the party unfolds, delightful hijinks ensue and there are laughs a-plenty for young readers as they identify with Lulu’s creative, caring nature and her adorable family.

I think this book is excellent because Lulu was very beautiful in the story, and she was very smart . . . I would read more of Lulu Bell's books.

These concise, cheerful books are perfect for girls in middle to upper primary. Broken down into short chapters, and peopled with positive, believable characters, they will be enjoyed by many, especially the animal lovers.
