May 2017 Debut of the Month

In a nutshell: adventurous little girl has fun with her friends Inspired by her great-great aunt’s adventures and travels across the world, little Lottie heads out into the woods with her friends Finn and Mia to do some beast hunting. Something large and heavy is living there, and with the help of the warden from the local wildlife centre the three discover what it is. There’s nothing more fun than messing about in the outdoors with your friends, says this exciting, satisfying story. In line with the intention of the popular range of dolls, it gently encourages readers to ‘be brave, be bold, be you’, and Lottie is happily inquisitive and sporty. Short chapters and lots of illustrations makes this just right for newly independent readers. ~ Andrea Reece

Leanne Gill, Publisher of Licensed Properties at Penguin Random House Children’s said: "We are delighted to be the publishing partner for Lottie Dolls. At Penguin Children's, we, of course, share Lottie's love of reading, but also her passion for inspiring exploration, creativity and individuality and a desire to promote positive role models for children. We can't wait to bring Lottie to a wider audience through our fiction and activity books launching in summer 2017."

Lottie Dolls: Lottie Solves a Mystery by Lucie Braveheart

Meet Lottie. She's a little girl just like you - she loves adventures, mysteries and her little puppy, Biscuit. When Lottie finds an old book all about beasts of the world in her attic, she can tell it's going to be the start of a brilliant adventure! All she needs is a beast of her own to track ...and she doesn't have to wait long. There are strange rustlings and footprints in the Branksea Island woods! Lottie and her friends Mia and Finn set themselves the task of tracking down the Beast of Branksea. But what exactly is this mysterious creature? And can the trio find it before Mia's older brother Sammi ruins the whole adventure?

Lottie Solves a Mystery is based upon Lottie, one of the Lottie Dolls. Lottie Dolls are an age-appropriate, ethnically diverse doll, based on the body proportions of a real nine-year-old girl. Lottie Dolls has won 28 international toy awards, and sold more than 600,000 dolls, plus 350,000 accessory packs.

“I have two daughters and have been searching for ages for a doll just like Lottie. A doll my daughters can relate to rather than an impossible image they feel they must live up to. So refreshing! When I read your description about the doll standing on her own two feet, I nearly swooned. The release of this product is just so timely! Thank you for making something so necessary and so cute. (Often difficult to combine those two things.)” --- Megan Conley aka
