Written with great verve and a deep understanding of families and what holds them together The Lotterys Plus one is both fun and thought provoking., Lovereading4kids.co.uk
The Lotterys are a very recognisable family - very quickly the reader feels that they have known each member for years. That's part of the enchantment of Donoghue's writing - and the spell she weaves with this narrative is inescapable. She has written a family of eccentrics and individuals, but readers from all backgrounds will find themselves identifying with and understanding these wonderfully written characters.
Caroline Hadilaksono's silhouettes and illustrations resonate with the dynamic chaos of the Lottery family and perfectly complement the story Donoghue is telling, creating a warmth and a sense of home that is as compelling as it is beautiful.
The story itself could not be more relevant to the turbulent times the world finds itself in - the true meaning of belonging, home, tolerance and acceptance. Offbeat, funny, wise and deliciously different, Emma Donoghue's first book for children is an essential read.
Emma Donoghue... creates a warm-hearted, eccentric family community that encompasses all ages - and all backgrounds... the writing is assured and her characters emerge full of life and in glorious technicolour. For confident readers who want a thoroughly enjoyable read that is both thoughtful and fun this must be recommended. -- Ferelith Hordon, Books for Keeps
However, this is a story with understanding and acceptance at its heart and she comes to realise that he does belong with them after all - 'He's our plus one'. There are many characters in this story - each one a complete individual. From the parents to the children with Aspen's eating issues and inability to keep still, Brian/ Briar's gender fluidity and Oak's developmental delay - each is a part of this loving and chaotic family and each has their own clear identity. There is also a rich tapestry of cultural diversity at play throughout the story which threads its way through as part of family life, customs, food and festivals. Showing that family is what you make it, this is a wonderful story about relationships and family. -- Sue Wilsher, Reading Zone
Caroline Hadilaksono provides the wonderful black-and-white illustrations for this warm, contemporary and unique story which celebrates family life – however complex, curious and diverse that may be – and reminds us that love and affection have no rules or boundaries. -- Pam Norfolk, Lancashire Evening Post
