Of the three books in the Lily The Littlest Angel series that Miss Seven has read, this was by far her favourite. She was intrigued by the mention of snow as she loves to visit the snowfields in winter, and the onset of colder weather always means that this might be a possibility. The number of different challenges that Lily has to face over the course of the book also interested Miss Seven as she thought they might be fun to try too. Of course, she would need a pair of functional wings - but hey, that is just a detail!

We took turns reading aloud - Miss Seven is quite capable of reading on her own now, with the occasional stop when she meets an unfamiliar word, but she is still at the age when it is nice to listen to someone else reading. Both of us had a temporary break from reading when we reached Chapter Five. The chapter name is a real tongue twister and neither of us could manage to repeat it without getting tangled. "Silk Sacking Snow Angels" is really difficult to say accurately, even when you speak slowly. Saying it faster is impossible! Eventually Miss Seven managed it although she cheated by stopping after each word! There was lots of laughter, and we persuaded her mother and brother to try it as well.

In this book, Lily meets a new adversary - Wanda Westbrook. How Lily learns to deal with this challenge is the main theme of this book; this is a problem that is a perennial for children as they work out how to interact with others, and it is empowering for them to read about how other youngsters deal with friendship issues. In the end her commitment to the Angels' philosophies guides her choices. Miss Seven was impressed by that and her comment was that it helped her to make a difficult decision - a nice learning opportunity.

Arising from the friendship theme is the secondary idea of belief in oneself. Lily lacks the ability to acknowledge just how much talent she has. Her reaction when everyone praises her for her attitude and generosity is one of amazement; she had never realised just how much people thought of her. All through the story she had never dared to think she would do well, but others believed in her and were willing to take a chance. The strength she derives from that confidence is an important lesson for children: that you can do anything if you set your mind to it.

Miss Seven cannot wait for the next book in the series. She has read the first two books several times over, and undoubtedly will be reading about Lily's skitter skating adventures over and over as well. There a few better ways to pass the time!

Product reviews for listing 5706: The Entertainer
Author: Emma Dodd

Product image for The EntertainerWhen an entertainer dressed as a big cuddly bear arrives at a fancy dress party, the children are delighted. They hoot with laughter as he drinks water from a vase, goes wild on his skateboard and bursts all the balloons. So, after a fond farewell at the end of the day, everyone is surprised when another entertainer turns up, full of apologies for being late!
