Lulu’s Hat

Adventure Into Deep Magic Space!

Its widely believed that in True Magic Families one member of the family in each generation is born with The Magic Touch! It’s in the genes. Either you have it or don’t.

Each summer Uncle Jerry, the great magician in the family, would invite a niece or nephew to be his assistant. This was a unique opportunity for both to find out who would be the next great magician!

So when it was Lulu’s turn that summer, to volunteer and work with Uncle Jerry, everyone simply laughed. They urged Uncle Jerry to re-consider.. because after all Lulu was adopted! It couldn’t be her!

But Uncle Jerry was also a kind man. He let Lulu have her turn and invited her to join him as his assistant. Uncle Jerry showed her some simple tricks that she could perform to “open” the Magic Show. But Lulu was all thumbs. Still Lulu was determined to try and do her best.

First, she needed an outfit. She tried on several..

but none of them really “fit” her. Finally, she dug deep into the trunk, and pulled out a Hat!
She put in on and said “I like this!”.

Lulu's Hat finding it

Little did Lulu know that this was indeed a magician’s hat. A hat that would help her to do all the simple tricks her uncle showed her AND all of her Uncle’s difficult tricks too! Curious, Lulu wondered where this Hat came from? And when Lulu’s dog jumps inside her hat, where does he go to?

Lulu's Hat trying tricks

One day as Lulu performed her trick, her dog jumped in on cue but did not return when he was called for. So Lulu decides to jump in to rescue the dog herself. That’s when many strange things start to happen.. Will Lulu find her dog in Deep Magic Space? And will she and her dog be able to find their way back out to the Real World?

Lulu's Hat Hereboy

This is a great read aloud or self read for older kids. Susan Meddaugh, the authoress famous for her “Marth Speaks” books, has written a hilarious, witty and truly original chapter book for kids of age 6+. We loved the simple illustration that added to the story telling. Lulu’s character is very relatable as she tries to find the truth behind her family and the magical hat. This good hearted girl will want you to grab a magic hat and try some tricks of your own!

  2. Wow! This sounds like a wonderful book! I am very familiar with the “Martha Speaks” books, but hadn’t heard of this one. Being adopted myself, I love the idea of this story where Lulu gets just as much chance as everyone else. (Visiting from the Mommynificent Thursday link up.)

  3. We love this book too. I originally checked it out from the library but it got hidden away in a drawer for months so we had to buy it and then we finally found it 6 months later. I guess we were meant to own Lulu’s Hat!! LOL. Visiting via Mom’s Library Link Up.
