Lotta Makes A Mess!
by Astrid Lindgren
Age Range: 6-8
Following on from Lotta’s escapades in Lotta says No, a mischievous Lotta reappears in this delightful book, one year older. She wakes up one morning in a very bad mood indeed after having a frightening dream about her piggybear being attacked. From then on things just get worse for Lotta. She refuses to dress and put on a white jumper her grandma had knitted because she said it itched, so she cut the jumper into pieces. Then she refuses to go down to breakfast. Left to her own devices, she decides to leave home and move next door to their neighbour. Amusing developments follow.
Astrid Lindgren’s Lotta is a gem of a character and the book is complemented by the wonderful illustrations of Tony Ross.
