Welcome back to Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers.
Today, we're playing host to Rachel's Random Resources as we dive between the pages of a sparkly little number from the Children's Fiction side of things. It features a precocious, fashion forward little girl with a penchant for all things that sparkle, who is sent to probably the LEAST sparkly place possible in the name of family time. What's a girl to do? What indeed! Ladies and gents, join me as we welcome today's blog tour guest and book of choice...
Lottie Sparkles Magical Discovery
About the book...
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.
Lottie. Lottie. Lottie.
Having things that sparkle and shine is wondrous, but having family, people that love you, animals that need your love, and being part of something bigger than simply you is where the MAGIC in life truly lives.
While I liked Lottie, she certainly has a lot of growing up to do...but I think the time on the farm helped start her in the right direction. Now if only that cat could hurry up the lessons so she gets a dose of super sweet before she hits her teenage years! It's a short read, aimed at the younger audience, but honestly I think it needs a little adult reinforcement to help it on its way. I mean, I loved the accompanying artwork, the characters, and the base storyline, but the general arc, the meaning behind what's transpiring was a little on the vague side of things for me. However, it looks like there may be more adventures in Lottie's future, so fingers crossed...we'll see what happens!
About author Petra Quelch...

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.
