More About the Author
Although my work involved writing research papers, I'd never tried writing anything else. Sitting working at my computer one day, the name 'Tolly' quite literally came into my head and I had this overwhelming compulsion to write about her. Having received genuinely unexpected positive feedback and some great advice from adults and children, I wrote more stories about Tolly, with the hope that they would give young children as much enjoyment hearing/reading them, as I had in writing them.

Each chapter, nine in total, is a self contained story involving Tolly, her mum, her friends and her dog, Poppy. The writing style is user friendly and should help to increase a child's vocabulary with the use of a wide variety of words and phrases which have been cleverly thought about to avoid duplication of common words. The description is so vivid that a child will easily be able to imagine Tolly having her birthday party, playing at the seaside and Poppy digging for treasure etc. Chapters are just the right length for storytime or bedtime and all have a happy feel to them. One or two morals are thrown in to make a child think about their actions too but all in a subtle way.
I really rather enjoyed this little book. Each of the children's adventures is told as a short self contained story and covers subjects such as finding buried treasure, the village fête, a trip to the seaside, building snowmen in winter and several others. These wonderfully idyllic tales capture the innocence of childhood superbly but are also exciting enough to keep young readers entertained.
This book is suitable for reading together with younger children or for solo reading by more advanced readers and has quite a lot of content that should encourage questions and discussion.
Overall: 4 stars - If I were to criticise this book in any way it would be to say that the world in which Tolly lives is possibly slightly too perfect, but that can easily be forgiven in a children's book.
