Lulu and the Duck in the Park by Hilary McKay
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Lulu is an animal lover. She has a variety of pets, mostly ones she has rescued or pet sits for her classroom. One day, a tragic accident at the park regarding runaway dogs, lands a lost duck egg in Lulu's custody. Lulu hides the duck egg in her pocket and takes it back to school despite the fear of losing the class pet if she is caught bringing another pet into the classroom. Lulu and her friend, Mellie, keep the duck egg hidden for as long as possible until it finally hatches under Lulu's shirt. Instead of keeping the duckling, Lulu and Mellie return the duckling to the park with the help of their teacher.
A nice story about taking care of animals and keeping them safe. This story was a short, easy to read story for children ages 9-12 who love animals.
