Alex and Lulu: Two of a Kind: 12/20/10
Alex and Lulu by Lorena Siminovich is the story of best friends. Alex is a noisy, adventurous dog and Lulu is an artistic, thoughtful cat. One day Lulu begins to doubt their long standing friendship. It's up to Alex to convince her that they can be different and still be friends.
The book is presented as a colorful book of opposites with the plot of friendship holding the book together. Harriet liked the opposites part of the story and she liked the cute dog and the equally cute cat.
Lulu's concern though went right over her head. Her reaction to that part of the story was one of confusion. "Of course they are different! I'm different from my friends. Everyone is different. What is she worrying about?" she explained.
