Today I am joining the blog tour for a children’s book called Lottie Sparkles Magical Discovery by Petra Quelch. There is also an amazing giveaway at the bottom of this page to win a copy of the book.
Thank you to Rachel from Rachel’s Random Resources for the tour invite and copy of the book, which I have reviewed honestly.
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.
This is the story of Lottie Sparkles who loves her wardrobe of shiny, sparkly and glittery clothes. When she has to go and stay on her grandparent’s farm during the school holidays, she is not happy. However, her grandad leads her to the attic where she finds a treasure trove containing a magical jacket which has the power to give her everything she wishes for.
The book is a quick, easy read with lovely illustrations to really make Lottie Sparkles come alive. I absolutely loved the role reversal between Grandad George and Grandma Ada. He did the cooking and cleaning whilst she made inventions in the shed. The quirky grandparents were inspired and I would love them to feature more in the story.
I’m sure Lottie will appeal to many young girls who love to sparkle and I think this story could go on to make an excellent series. However, I would like Lottie to learn from her adventures and maybe reveal a kinder side to her nature.
A really fun storybook for children who love animals, magic, dressing up, but most of all…Sparkles!
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 neverending imagination.
