Big Long Lulu


“Big Long Lulu” is a project I’m doing with Siri Hustvedt. I had the idea to make an accordion book about a snake, and let all the action take place inside the snake’s body, so the kids can see how big a boa constrictor really is, when the book is fully extended.
I asked Siri Hustvedt to write the text, and was very excited when she agreed. She wrote a sweet little story about Lulu, who goes out into the big city to get over her loneliness and hunger. After much trouble, she is finally rescued by her friends, the old lady and the yellow dog.

Written by Siri Hustvedt. Illustrated by Poul Lange.
