"With her pithy put-downs and her easy way with half-truths, it’s impossible not to warm to Little Lulu"

Those who like to think of the 50s as a time when women and children were seen rather than heard are in for a surprise in the case of the pugnacious and endlessly resourceful Lulu, whose voice is almost permanently raised and whose raison d’etre is basically to show the boys that girls are just as good as they are. When she falls out with her best friend, Tubby, it’s always he who ends up eating humble pie. When Alvin, the bratty six-year-old she is sometimes required to babysit, has one of his temper tantrums, only Lulu can shut him up, a silence she wins by telling him elaborate stories (Lulu’s way with narrative is one of the things that drew the young Atwood to her).
