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

Lottie for her two week holiday will be spending with her grandparents, Grandma Ada and Grandad George, who lived in a tiny village called Nosegobbled. Lottie is a young lady who enjoyed everything sparkly and beautiful, and her thoughts about spending with her grandparents seem quite dull and anything but fun or sparkly.

Her first week in the farm was absolutely disastrous! she was covered in mud and the farm animals took her clothes from her. In the second week, her grandad takes her up to the

My review will be live on my blog on 23rd November 2019 as part of the blog tour!

I thought that this was a well written story but I didn’t really warm to Lottie very much at the outset of this story (which I think was the author’s aim) but she did improve towards the end I am glad to report and I was pleased when she tried to get more involved.

My daughter is only two and she loves everything sparkly and shiny and we bought a new unicorn bag on Saturday as it was covered in sequins so I can

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

Lottie loves everything clean and sparkly so two weeks in the country is not her thing at all!

In Lottie Sparkles’ Magical Discovery Petra Quelch has created someone many children will be able to relate to perfectly. Lottie is sulky, determined to get her own way and yet able to learn from her adventures so that I can imagine children desperate to get into the attics of their own homes to see if they can discover something just as magical. Although Lottie is perhaps more traditionally appealing
Lottie loves sparkly things, especially clothing. When her parents send her to the country to spend time with her grandparents, all Lottie sees is dullness and mud. Her grandmother presents Lottie with a pet, an experiment gone wrong. When all of Lottie's clean, bright, sparkly wardrobe is stolen and destroyed by the animals, she pouts and hides away in her bedroom.
Finally, all she has left to wear are the plain, DULL clothing her grandparents offer. So what could it hurt to go explore the dusty

After reading this I want my own magical jacket and so does my grandson. We had a great time chatting about what we would do. Lottie isn’t keen on two weeks in the country. It’s the opposite of everything she likes. But a trip to the attic changes all that. This is a lovely read that we enjoyed and will be reading again.

Lottie Sparkles' Magical Discovery is an interesting children's book. It feels like it's written for slightly older children (mainly girls; maybe between the ages of 6-10), mostly because of how Lottie Sparkles acts.

She's a bit of a fashionista, and she loves her sparkly, glittery clothing. Dresses, hats, shoes... you name it, she has it.

Unfortunately for Lottie, she's being sent to her grandparents' farm for a vacation. This makes her angry, because everyone knows you can't wear sparkly

5 Enchanting, Fun, Light Hearted, had me giggling out loud!

Lottie Sparkles Magical Discoveryis an Enchanting, Fun Children's Book that I thoroughly enjoyed and wanted more!

Lottie adores all things that sparkle, she despises dirt, mud, grime, dust and pretty much anything that will get her mucky.

So when her parents decide to send her on holiday to her Grandparents in the little village of Nosegobbled, she was very upset and angry at the thought of potentially getting dirty.

But what Lottie doesn't

I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

Lottie Sparkles has only one interest: sparkly clothes. She spends all of her time in her room trying on clothes and looks down on the children outside who get dirty playing. When her mom tells her she’s going to visit her grandparents, she’s mad because she’s sure that they live in a dirty place and thinks she won’t have a good time.

Lottie is not my favorite character. She’s

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 ...more

Lottie Sparkles Magical Discovery is the story of a little girl called Lottie who adores dressing up in sparkly clothes and accessories. Her wardrobe is entirely filled with glamorous, sparkly clothes.

This is the story of a visit to her grandparents home where she encounters lots of farm animals who like to dress up in her clothes!

Lottie Sparkles Magical Discovery is Quelch's debut children's story book, which I think will appeal to girls in the age range 6 - 10 years. This book has lots of

The story of a fashionable young lady who is sent off to holiday with her Grandad George and Grandma Ada in the village of Nosegobbled only to have any number of indignities befall her and her beautiful clothes as she ventures around their farm ... that is until she comes across something quite magical.

A fun tale that I'm sure will delight children who will no doubt giggle at the mere mention of Nosegobbled (the village in which Lottie's grandparent's live) and a hamsterrel (a cross between a
