Lulu doesn't want to be stuck in a museum, she wants to play outside in the snow! She sits on the bench and sniffs. Before she knows it the flying babies have escaped a painting and swept her off her feet. Lulu is flown into a whimiscal, magical adventure through a world of pictures, meeting Kings, growling at tigers and getting lost in the woods.
"Simmonds, using a comic-strip technique reminiscent of Raymond Briggs's Father Christmas and Snowman, brings great warmth and humor to her illustrations." -- Christopher Lehmann-Haupt * The New York Times * "Simmonds spins a lighthearted fantasy, presented in cartoon panels that enhance the story's pacing and surprises...whimsical touches abound, offering readers a rousing good time." * Publishers Weekly *
