Why I chose this?
As I have a 5 year old and an 8 year old I thought this would be the perfect book for them. Unfortunately for my son this book wasn’t as interesting as Teen Titans (Sorry Petra, don’t take it personally, his food nor I am not as interesting as Teen Titans) so I read this with my daughter
What it’s about
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.
What my daughter Thought
As an 8 year old girl with a love of sparkly things this was a winner for her. For a change she sat there and read the whole book without stopping to ask questions along the way. That is a winner in my books.
Not going to lie there was a couple of words in there that might be deemed “too big” for the younger scale but my 8 year old had no issues with them.
I enjoyed this book as my daughter could relate to the character (think it helped that they have similar names). When it’s time for us to go shopping or visiting my little girl wont wear something plan and simple like her mam. Instead she’ll go for the glitteriest clothes she can find and have my sisters do her hair). So reading a book that she could relate to was fantastic and she has made me aware that she will be telling her teachers and her school friends about it.
