"Halloween magic for children…"
I saw The Colour Blue on Mumsnet FB when it was advertised for free on Kindle and thought I would take a chance with the Halloween theme. As it turned out the children love it and we now have The Colour Red as well. Would recommend the paperbacks as the illustrations are just lovely.Read moreLess
My little boy has been going on about Loss recently and I thought it was time to see what all the fuss was about. In short -brilliant. Set at Halloween this one is all about a blue eyed witch who asks a little boy for a promise which he breaks and Loss comes to his rescue. Delightfully illustrated and told in rhyme it is one of those childrens books that you find yourself reciting even after you have stopped reading. Suspect this will be our Halloween favourite this year.Read moreLess
We got a copy of Loss De Plott & The Colour Blue in a free kindle promotion and bought the rest of the books straight away. If you are looking for innocent magical reads with enticing illustrations these are a must have for children. I have a little girl (aged 5) who is now talking about Loss all the time, but when she is asleep I have started reading these to myself!Read moreLess
"Lovely Halloween read…"
My children are 3 & 6 and they love this book. I choose it because of the reviews on here and the Halloween theme. The pictures are really good and the words flow really easily. This one is going to be a favorite for a while I think. Definitely recommended.Read moreLess
We read The Colour Red and it has been our favourite read for months now with very well worn pages. The Colour Blue picks up the story of Loss and her adventures continue with a Halloween theme this time. The illustrations are as good as they were first time around and the story just as engaging. Fabulous read and one sure to be a bedtime (or any other time) favourite.Read moreLess
"Hallowen magic for children…"
My first ever review but we enjoyed this little gem so much. Set at Halloween and the second in a series of these childrens books with Loss De Plott there is fun for everyone. My children are 5 and 6 and the witches, dancing skeletons, gremlins and the boy made of straw made a magical story that they keep asking me to read again and again. Highly recommended.Read moreLess
"Another enchanting tale…"
Another enchanting tale with Loss and the perfect follow on from The Colour Red. The illustrations are stunning and compliment the story, beautiful. The characters are completely different to anything else I have read to my grandson recently. Strawboys,blue eyed witches and a magical book of dreams my grandson cried when I told him The Colour Gold wasn't on sale yet.I highly recommend this lovely series of books for all the family.Read moreLess
"Our favourite so far!…"
Our favourite so far and the theme this time is Halloween. The illustrations are a bit darker but it has everything from witches to dancing skeletons as Loss continues her adventures. Will definitely be read on Halloween!Read moreLess

"A wonderful childrens book…"
Even better than The Colour Red the theme this time is Halloween. Witches, dancing skeletons and a boy made of straw. This series is simply wonderful and we are looking forward to The Colour Gold.Read moreLess
"Another 5 stars for Loss…"
This is our second childrens book from the author . We loved the first one and this one is even better. the illustrations are a little more complex and I think this makes the book even more interesting for young readers whilst the words are very clever. After just a couple of reads they are hard to get our of your head. Another 5 stars for Loss!Read moreLess
