Ill. by Serena Geddes. Random House Australia, 2013.
Lulu Bell and the Cubby Fort ISBN 9781742758794

Even though this is a new series, Lulu Bell is building up quite a following amongst the younger, newly independent readers, so you will be pleased to know that the next two in the series are now available.
In Lulu Bell and the cubby fort Lulu and her family visit a farm for the school holidays with all the fun and adventures that brings for a little girl whose passion is animals, and in Lulu Bell and the moon dragon, she helps her best friend Molly prepare for the Vietnamese Moon Festival. Of course, in each there are distractions and it's Lulu to the rescue, but both are engaging reads that both Miss 7 and Miss 9 enjoyed. And there are two more scheduled for January 2014 - Lulu Bell and the circus pup and Lulu Bell and the sea turtle - which will give your students something to look forward to as the new school year approaches.
