I have some little girls who will be most excited when this hits the shelves after the holidays. They loved the first one I brought along to the library so the rest of the series is on our ‘to buy’ list for next year’s budget.

The stories are quick and easy to read but the secret codes are great fun and provide a real challenge for some little readers.

In this new adventure Lottie comes up against famous treasure seeker Lady Viola Kirton who is desperately hunting the lost Eagle of the Ninth Legion. Lady Viola has long been Lottie’s role model but not once she discovers that the snobby woman only wants the Eagle so that she can sell it for a fabulous price rather than preserve it with the other antiquities in the British Museum.  Young Lottie is not about to let that happen so along with Uncle Bert and Reg she determines to solve the mystery of the hidden treasure first.

We have four more to catch up on so they had better be top of our list methinks!

 

Highly recommended for your newly independent readers from around Year 1 upwards.
