Lula may be a pint-sized gal, but she’s got a BIG ol’ voice!
Since her birth, Lula’s LOUD voice has wreaked ten kinds of havoc across Pryor County, disrupting humans and animals alike. Lula’s parents are worried: What’s going to happen when Lula starts school? Will Lula ever learn to use her “inside voice”? But when Lula spots something sinister making its way toward town, it seems that she may have found just the right use for that BIG ol’ voice after all. With a text that’s chockfull of Southern charm and silly digital illustrations that bring this tall tale to life, kids will giggle at the antics of the unforgettable LOUD Lula.

“The consistent language feels authentic and is filled with silly Southern expressions, such as when she has ‘the whole schoolhouse shakin’ like a big ol’ bowl of boysenberry jelly.’ The digital illustrations match the expressive energy. VERDICT: Book selectors who think they don’t need another loud voice lesson book haven’t met Lula yet.” —School Library Journal
“An excellent classroom read-aloud...Recommended.” —School Library Connection
