Lulu Bell and the Christmas Elf




Cooking, a concert, and cricket on the beach – it’s a Lulu Bell Christmas story!

Cooking, a concert, and cricket on the beach – it’s a Lulu Bell Christmas story!

The Bell family are preparing for the best Christmas ever. There are presents to wrap, yummy food to cook and costumes to sew.

But Lulu’s friends Olivia and Jo are too sad to sing in the school concert because their little cat Bonnie is missing. Can Lulu cheer them up and help find Bonnie before Christmas Eve? Maybe a special letter to Santa will help.

Praise for Lulu Bell and the Christmas Elf

Another charming story of Lulu Bell helping others against a backdrop of all that is familiar with Australian children . . . Lulu’s fans will be thrilled that she’s back with another story, perfect for this time of year and as a present under the tree . . . Belinda Murrell has crafted a series of stories that really appeal to those who are newly-independent readers, ready to venture into the world of “chapter books”.

Barbara Braxton, thebottomshelf.edublogs.org

Look who's back in town! Just in time for Christmas as well! Christmas in Australia - concerts, carols, cooking, cricket, crafts and community . . . The real joy of the Lulu Bell books is the sense of love and warmth and strong community ties that binds the characters together and coupled with that is the opportunity for young readers to learn.
