Who wouldn’t like a magical jacket?
Lottie Sparkles is a little girl who loves everything sparkly, mainly clothes. Anything plain or dirty is a disgrace in Lottie s mind! When Lottie is sent to spend time with her lovely grandparents in the countryside, she is furious because that essentially means smelly animals, lots of puddles and hard work! But what she certainly didn’t count on was coming face to face with a magical object.
I received a copy of this book from the author in return for an honest review.
I love a book which features animals and magic, and this one has both. Lottie is a young girl, who lives in the city with her professional parents and nanny, She is used to material comfort, and everything in her life is clean and ordered. With a love of sparkly things especially clothes, she views two weeks with her grandparents in the countryside with disdain and trepidation.
This is a story about trying out new experiences, realising that material possessions are not the most important things in life and finding magic in simple things.
I read the digital version of the story, and the illustrations are lovely, complementing the text well. The story is simple to read but uses words that stretch a child’s understanding and vocabulary.
The magical element makes the story special and teaches Lottie an important lesson. The characters are lovely. especially the animals and the story has a fairytale quality with a positive ending.
The author loves everything sparkly and glittery but hopefully, she says, she is not a diva like Lottie from her book. Aside from all the glitz and glamour, she is a collector of magical books, tea sets, movies and a huge fan of chocolate. She has two little girls also known as “The Little Book-Fairies” with a BIG imagination.
