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’m sure everyone has a little bit of Lottie Sparkles in them – that side of us that likes to be glamorous and a bit diva-ish and spoiled at times. She really is a character that I think most children will identify with and love to read about.
Lottie loves all things sparkly and is horrified when she is off to stay in the country with her grandparents. Much to her dismay, her pretty things get ruined by the animals and she has no choice but top wear the ‘dull and boring’ country clothes. But… when she ventured outside to explore, the magic truly beings.
I adored the fact that her grandparents had roles around the house and farm that were reversed from traditionally expected roles. The book stimulates lots of discussion about the need for material things and to look perfect all of the time. It also provides a gateway into discussions about true happiness and where it can be found.
The story is supplemented by delightfully drawn illustrations that will capture any child’s imagination.
