This amusing story trails Elsie's young granddaughter, Lulu, through both exciting times and troubling trials. To take you on a stroll through the book, there's festive parties, rattlesnake encounters, pet ponies to ride, devastating injuries, and a home full of love and compassion. You'll be able to see Lulu grow in spirit to get past her famous tempers, with both her Heavenly & Earthly fathers guiding her.
Personally, I just loved this Elsie book, and I couldn't wait to finish it! I'm excited to read book #14 next.
