Lula’s Brew by Elizabeth O. Dulemba.
About the Book: Lula’s Aunties want her to be a witch like them. But Lula would rather study cookbooks than spell books (and hates to fly on a broom). Lula wants to be a famous chef. In desperation, the Aunties insist she try to make one last potion. Lula secretly adds her cooking flair and creates a brew that bewitches the entire town, including her Aunties! This fun rhyming tale transcends the typical Halloween story to appeal to cooks and “foodies” throughout the year.
My Review: Lula lives with her three aunties who were known to be the wickedest witches in the land. Their goal was to teach Lula witchery ways and bewitching spells but all Lula wanted to do is become a chef with her own four stars bistro restaurant. Her aunties thought she was studying 30 minutes spells but Lula was busy reading cookbooks and watching food programs. So instead of cooking magical potions that oozed or glowing bright green ghastly drinks, Lula came up with a plan to cook a stew that smells good but with a little twist.
I enjoyed reading this book with soft, cold color illustrations. This is a perfect book to read for Halloween.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So our goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I decided to start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. I intend to continue with this program to help parents.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away 500 books a year.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library
My goal for 2012 is to giveaway 300 books to children.
