Reviews

I loved the Lotterys! Wonderfully wacky, full of humour and lovely soft touches. * Award-winning author, Elizabeth Laird *
This engaging tale is moving without veering into sentimentality. For all the Lotterys' apparent eccentricity, the novel delves into universal themes of family relationships that will resonate with readers from all backgrounds. -- Kirkus, starred review
The story itself could not be more relevant to the turbulent times the world finds itself in - the true meaning of belonging, home, tolerance and acceptance. Offbeat, funny, wise and deliciously different, Emma Donoghue's first book for children is an essential read. * INIS reading guide *
a warm-hearted, curious and hugely appealing slice of unconventional family life, told with considerable wit and charm * Teach Primary *
Funny, charming and full of heart * Irish Mail on Sunday *
There is a rich tapestry of cultural diversity at play throughout the story which threads its way through as part of family life, customs, food and festivals. Showing that family is what you make it, this is a wonderful story about relationships and family. * Reading Zone *
A smart, thoughtful reader of 10-plus will enjoy the gentle humour in this tribute to the modern family. * Irish Independent *
It is a hoot spending time in this Utopia. * Observer *
Told with utter charm and a lightness of touch * BookTrust *
Written with great verve and a deep understanding of families and what holds them together The Lotterys Plus one is both fun and thought provoking. * Lovereading4kids.co.uk *

Donoghue vividly captures the Lotterys' chaotic but always loving home * Publishers Weekly *
