Readers' Reviews

A smart, sassy and sunnah-centered read

"It's like an adventure!" my nine year old son explained why he so eager to finish `Lulu and the Very Big Meanies'. Lulu's story was an enjoyable little journey for me as well. She is a smart, sassy and sunnah-centered kid. Lulu tolerates her puberty-ridden brothers, adores her pizza tossing dad, and handles (likely Islamophobic bullies) with great grace and humor. My family thoroughly enjoyed this story, as well as the fun illustrations and the informative Lulu's Personal Dictionary in the back- thank God Lulu could explain `Stepford Wives' to her young readers, I sure couldn't! Totally looking forward to the next Lulu adventure, insha Allah!

A look into the life of a Muslim American family

Being a WASP brought up American who married an Egyptian,I can relate to the characters. The story is wholesome,sweet and engaging. Additional,it provides a much needed and accurate view of the lifestyle and values of many American Muslim families.

My daughter and I both enjoyed this book very much.
