We all know two things for certain. Young readers love to see a reflection of their own lives: school, friendship, family and so on and that Vivian French excels in creating engaging and whimsical adventures for her audience.

This is Lottie’s second book and some readers will already have become acquainted with a little girl who is much like themselves except for the fact that Lottie is a werewolf. She’s not just a werewolf however because even though these creatures have special powers Lottie has even more due to being born at a very auspicious time. She is super fast and super strong for example.

But in most aspects she is a little girl like many others. She’s excited about her new school and new best friends, she gets annoyed with her big brother and she finds her parents by turns wonderful and a little embarrassing.

Lottie and Wilf want to plan a super surprise for their best friend Marjory who has never had her own birthday party and they come up with a fabulous idea. They will persuade the super-hot group the Wailers to play at her own twilight party. Interfering with their plans and indeed their friendship are usual-not-so-nice classmate Aggie and her even nastier cousin Kiki who is visiting.

Luckily all is resolved in time for a perfectly splendid party the likes of which Marjory has neither experienced nor expected.

This is jolly good fun in the very best way. Readers will love the werewolfish twists on normal everyday life yet still relate easily to the dilemmas and situations.

Recommended for readers from around 7 years upwards.
