BooksforTopics Reading for Pleasure Recommendations
As many of our followers know, we love finding new illustrated chapter books suitable for younger readers and especially for children who are in the early stages of reading chapter books independently.
The Lottie Luna series (available here) by much-loved author Vivian French is about a young werewolf with superpowers and is highly illustrated throughout by Nathan Reed. Perfect for fans of Isadora Moon and Amelia Fang, and also for readers who like magical elements but are not yet ready to take on the Harry Potter books.
Lottie Luna might look like your average werewolf but she’s really rather extraordinary. Being born on the night of a solar eclipse has given her exceptional powers of super-strength, super-speed and super-vision. Lottie doesn’t really like to use her special skills though – she just wants to be like everyone else. She just wants to live a normal life and go to school with her friends, unless her special skills help get them out of trouble ...
The stories in the series follow Lottie as she sets her mind to helping different causes - from saving her school's garden from being destroyed to keeping her friends safe on a night time camping trip.
Likeable Lottie introduces magical fantasy characters without becoming too 'spooky' for younger readers, and is sure to be a hit with children in the 5-8 age bracket.
