Lulu Gets a Cat
In the fifth book about Lulu, she and her family adopt a cat from the cat shelter. When Lulu first expresses a wish to get a cat, her mother encourages her to find out about the work involved in looking after it as well as the pleasure. They find out information from library books and the internet and Lulu practises using her toy cat before bringing a real little cat home, settling her in and naming her Makeda after an African Queen. The final picture shows Lulu sharing a story with her new pet.
