Book Description

Hi! I'm Charlie (DON'T call me Charlotte - ever!). History is boring, right? Wrong! The Victorians weren't all deadly dull and drippy. Lottie certainly isn't. She's eleven - like me - but she's left school and has a job as a nursery maid. Her life is really hard, just work work work, but I bet she'd know what to do about my mum's awful boyfriend and his wimpy little son. I bet she wouldn't mess it all up like I do . . .

Amazon Review

Eve Karpf reads veteran children's author Jacqueline Wilson's The Lottie Project in this unabridged three-cassette pack. This is the story of Charlie, a bright and happy young girl on the brink of change, told with a brilliant combination of comedy, poignancy and a touch of history.

For her Victorian history project, Charlie hits upon the idea of writing the diary of Lottie, a young Victorian serving girl. When her mother, Jo, loses her job as a shop manageress and starts work as a cleaner, Charlie's previously happy and comfortable lifestyle is threatened and she finds that her own hardships and struggles are not so different from Lottie's.

The Lottie Project is at once entertaining and intelligent. By eloquently capturing Charlie's anxiety as she faces up to her new and uncertain future, Wilson's talent for taking an important topic and treating it with respect and humour as she pushes her characters forward is again harnessed in this touching, human story.

Running time is four hours 40 minutes. --Susan Harrison


"Wilson deserves her popularity - even the most resistant page-turner would find this difficult to put down" The Sunday Times "The trick of writing as a child is not easy to pull off, but Wilson does it triumphantly" Independent on Sunday "Her latest vivid, superbly observed story of real life" The Times "A touching tale ... Written in a first-person voice of disarming honesty, the book rings true through all its many layers" Guardian "Jacqueline Wilson's clever interweaving of the modern and Victorian story lines makes this book especially satisfying. Nick Sharratt's delightful line drawings help to make the text accessible to a very wide range of readers, who will find this first rate novel both intuitive and humorous" Carousel

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lottie Project 13 Jun. 2002
Format:Audio Cassette
The Lottie Project is a another fun book by award winning Jacqueline Wilson with more funny illustratings by Nick Sharratt.
Charlie (Charlotte) starts a new term at school with a new teacher-Miss Beckworth- and is immediatly annoyed as she has to sit next to a whimpy boy, Jamie Edwards. So when Jo, her teenage Mum, loses her job their lovely flat and lives are in jepordy. Mean while Lottie's(Lottie being Charlies Victorian school project)life is not going well as she has started a new job as a nursury maid, looking after 3 spoilt children, Victor (oldest), Lousia, Freddie (baby).
When Jo starts a new cleaning job for weedy Mark and weedy Robin, Charlie gets ultra annoyed especially when Jo falls in love the measley pair, Charlie turns her back on all if them back on all of them and surprisly finds comfort in boring Jamie Edwards and moody Miss Bckworth. During the next few weeks Charlie persuades herself and little Robin that Mark and Jo are going to run off together so Robin does a runna. Mean while little Freddie runs away from Lottie whislt in the park and cannot be found. So together (yet in different time periods) Charlie and Lottie both pray for the lost childrens safety.
This book is great, a funny jet touching story which over 8's would enjoy. It is writen in the same, funny way as all Jacqueline Wilsons other succeses. It was a great read so I awarded it 5/5!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy it! (if you don't have it already of course) 3 Aug. 2001
By A Customer
I got this book for Christmas and didn't put it down until Easter, even though by that time I'd finished it fifty times! In one way, it's like all of the other Jacqueline Wilson books, because the rating I have to give it is 6 out of 5, but it's unique, none of the others are anywhere near similar. In this, Charlie has to do a project on the Victorians and decides to do it her own way. She keeps a diary of a nursery maid called Lottie, as well as dealing with problems in her own life. Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Lottie Project 21 April 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow! This book is EXCELLENT! So worth the money. Now here's the plot:
Charlotte (in this book mostly known as Charlie) has to do a project about the Victorians. So instead of doing a project on a big piece of card and telling people about what inventions they used etc etc etc,for her project she wrote sort of a diary about a nursery maid and her name is Lottie…

In this book there are two chapters in a row with the same
title. Say for example Seaside and Seaside. That's because one chapter is about Charlie and her life and the next one is a diary entry for Lottie.

Great value for money. And I've just discovered that my auntie (who is 22) read Jacqueline Wilson books when she was small and she read every single one that was out when she was small and she said to me "Have you read the Lottie project? It's absolutely super", and that's the only reason I bought it and I'm glad I've bought it because it's SUPER!!!!!!!!!

I would definitely recommend .

I hope you will find my review helpful!

Charlie (real name Charlotte) is an eleven year-old girl. At school she has to do a project on the Victorians, so she decides to write a diary of an imaginary Victorian girl the same age as her, Lottie (real name Charlotte). The book switches between Charlie's life and Lottie's diary.
Lottie has a really hard life. She has to become a servant to support her family. She is bossed around by everyone and is always hungry and tired.
What did I like about this book? Well, it's a Jacqueline Wilson book! This means it's very realistic. The characters are real people in real situations. You see things through Charlie's eyes but Charlie is not as clever as she thinks she is and doesn't always realise what's going on. In other people's books, all the plot threads are tied up and everything is settled by the end. That doesn't happen with JW's books - I always find that when I have finished the book I still have questions about the characters and what happens next. She is writing for children but I think most authors writing books for adults could learn a lot from her. This book is particulary clever because of the way Lottie's life mirrors Charlie's.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truely Brilliant! I couldn't put it down. 14 April 2002
By A Customer
Charlie has a great mum, but her and her mum are having money problems. She hates her new teacher and is made to do a project on the Victorians. Charlie does her project as a diary, of a girl of the same age is herself, named Lottie. Charlie compares herself with Lottie and realizes how hard life could be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant! 15 May 2000
By A Customer
This book was really good because Charlie turned a simple school project into an amazing diary of a young servant who had to leave school at a very early age. This book shows that a relationship between a teacher and a pupil can change because of a crisis. I loved it and would recommend it to anyone!
