Red & Lulu
By Matt Tavares
Red and Lulu are a happy pair of cardinals. When the mighty evergreen they live in is suddenly taken away on a truck – with Lulu inside! – Red travels for miles, searching everywhere until he finds her. Once reunited, they are able to enjoy the beauty of the holidays – together.
Lulu and Red are a truly adorable couple. When they finally find each other, it is as heartwarming as any of the best New York romantic comedies.
I appreciate the footnote at the end of the book. Taking down an old, enormous tree for short-term enjoyment seems really terrible, especially once you experience it from a bird’s perspective. Knowing that the tree is enjoyed by millions and then turned into a home for a hard-working family – that feels better.
