Lily the Littlest Angel 2: Lily Has a Secret product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsWhen Lily hears a plaintive meowing in the bushes, she breaks all the rules by leaving the grounds of Amelia's Angel Academy and bringing a little kitten into her room. Lily has to find a disguise for the kitten before racing off to practise for the concert. What will happen if her secret is revealed?

This charming series about Lily the Littlest Angel has been given an exciting, fresh look for a new wave of readers. It features a new, easy-to-read font which is perfect for the target age of 6-8 years, and charming monochrome illustrations by Aki Fukuoka.

Having read the first book in the Lily the Littlest Angel series, Miss Seven was overjoyed to find that she was going to review the second with me as well. The story and the reading level are just right for her, so we took turns reading to each other. We finished the entire book in the course of on three-hour car journey, although we stopped at the end of each chapter to unpack what had happened, so she was overjoyed at the end of the trip to find that she could keep this book too. The first in the series already has pride of place on her bedside table, and has been read several times over, so I am pretty sure that this one is destined to join the first.

The story is simple but nicely crafted. It shows what happens when a child tried to do something that is not permitted and then has to deal with the fallout. Kittens are not allowed at Lily's academy, of course, so the little angel gets into all sorts of scrapes as she tried to conceal it. Hilarious complications ensue as the kitten fails to understand why it cannot do exactly as it like, so takes every opportunity to escape.

Interspersed with the text are Aki Fukuoka's charming illustrations. Miss Seven loved them; every time one appeared, we had to stop reading to admire the picture. As someone who is at that in-between stage with picture books in her past and text dense books in her future, Miss Seven appreciates the regular insertion of graphics which enhance the story and add to her appreciation. Her favourite was the picture of the harp; being into music herself, she was horrified when the instrument was broken and very relieved to find out that it could be fixed.

Because Miss Seven adores cats (and most other domestic creatures as well) she had great fun following the kitten's antics, although she assured me that she would never dress up a kitten in a doll's outfit. That would be far too bizarre! Nevertheless, she enjoyed the idea of carrying a kitten round in a bag like Lily's, and wondered what her mother might say if she suggested it. Every time Lily's kitten uttered a sound, Miss Seven echoed it with loud meows and pretended to be a cat too.

Like many children, Lily tries to get it right but often ends up going the wrong way about it. She is so sure she will get into trouble for daring to bring the kitten into the academy that she tries to conceal it - naturally, with no hope of succeeding. So instead, she just ends up complicating things unnecessarily through the attempted subterfuge. Miss Seven could see herself in that situation, much to her amusement.

I hope this series will continue to be released in the updated edition. Miss Seven would certainly be first in line to offer to review new Lily books. And even though I am no longer seven years old, I do enjoy them too.
