“Lulu still has a world-class case of self-absorption, but her arguing skills have matured a bit since Lulu and the Brontosaurus…. This extended comic fable is rife with authorial intrusion: Viorst ensures that readers are having fun, getting the point, and noticing her fictional ploys (“In actual life this almost never could happen. In the stories I write, things like this happen a lot. Deal with it”). Fortunately, these asides really are funny. Smith is in fine form with his pencil illustrations, especially the caricatures of Lola’s three canine charges—“bigheaded, bad-breathed brute” Brutus, “teeny-tiny white fuzzball” Pookie, and elusive German-comprehending dachshund Cordelia—and the owners they resemble.”
—Horn Book Magazine, September/October 2012
"Viorst’s narrator-heroine, enjoying a fresh turn after “Lulu and the Brontosaurus,” is full of ‘tude and doesn’t care if you don’t like it. A child of entitlement, Lulu is nonetheless told she needs to earn money for her latest heart’s desire. Dog walking teaches her a lesson. Lulu feels like a cousin of, and a step up the chapter book ladder in difficulty from, Junie B. Jones. Smith’s sharp-eyed charcoals add kick." (New York Times Book Review Children's Bookshelf, September 16, 2012)
“In this sequel to Lulu and the Brontosaurus (S & S, 2010), the incorrigible Lulu, oft indulged by her parents, is desperate for ways to make money to pay for a mysterious something that they absolutely cannot afford…hilarious narration with much editorial wisecracking and frequent asides directed to readers. The story moves along quickly, variations in page layout and typeface add interest, and Smith’s stylized black-and-white drawings are a big part of the fun. A perfect choice for transitional readers.” (School Library Journal, October 2012)
