Lulu Bell is back on the farm for a rainy-day adventure and a party to remember. The farm is one of Lulu's favourite places. It's perfect for a pirate party to celebrate Gus's birthday. If only it would stop raining! Where can the kids build the pirate ship they've promised Gus? Put your gumboots on, everyone, because Lulu has the answer. But where is that naughty dog, Jessie?
