Lulu always gets what she wants. If she doesn't, she throws a fit, screeching until the light bulbs burst, and then her parents give in. So what happens when she decides that she wants a brontosaurus for her birthday? Not only are they extinct, but they might not make very good pets! When Lulu's parents try to reason with her, she storms out into the forest, encountering a snake, a tiger, a bear, and yes, finally, a brontosaurus. But the brontosaurus has plans other than being Lulu's pet. Find out what happens, and if Lulu ever learns some manners, in this funny and well-illustrated story.
