All Lulu wants for her birthday is a brontosaurus, and to her utter indignation her parents tell her “No!” So she runs away from home to find her brontosaurus, singing all the way, and all along her journey she faces off with a variety of creatures, telling them off with her bossy attitude and demanding personality. In the end she does find her brontosaurus, and it teaches her a bit about manners, humorously showing her that making demands of others isn’t very nice. In a nutshell, she learns a bit of what it means that “honey draws more flies than vinegar.”
