I am delighted to be a part of a Rachels Random Resource’s Blog Tour as it has been a while. Getting the opportunity to find out about other authors is enjoyable for me and escapism for my usual reading.
I am reviewing Lottie Sparkles Magical Discovery by Petra Quelch and there’s also a giveaway to win one signed copy, keep reading.
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.
An easy read that I shared with my children who all enjoyed it in different ways, they are aged 9, 7 and 4. Using fashion as part of a story is a particular challenge but something you don’t see quite often, there’s nothing quite like an outfit that makes you feel special. The illustrations are unique and enhance the story.
Lottie Sparkles went away to her grandparents for a short holiday and she wasn’t excited about it at all. After discovering a magical jacket and other glimmering shimmering clothes she finds herself entertained. I would have liked to have seen a message behind the story as it would have been perfect to give a moral and something readers would remember.
Perfect for young children and great to open up discussions to bring more depth to the text, an exploration or adventure one might say.

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.
