Product description

Review

5 stars - I absolutely loved this book! I absolutely loved this book. I read it in one sitting, it was so good I couldn't put it down. All the characters are great and I think they were very appropriate for the story. My favourite character has to be Lola as she is so witty and relatable. She is brave, kind, strong (emotionally and physically) and just generally amazing. My least favourite character is definitely the King of the Mountain Fairies because he was very mean, he wouldn't listen or open his mind to anyone else, and in his eyes he was right and everyone else was wrong even if they weren't . I also really liked the Queen of the Water Fairies because she was more than happy to take Lola under her wing and teach her everything she needed to know. I think she contributed to the story a lot. I loved how at one point it switched from 1st person to 3rd person. This tells the reader what is happening (outside of the main character's knowledge) which I think is very good. When the book was written in first person, it really felt like Lola was having a conversation with me, which made me like her even more and I felt like she was a friend of mine. I felt more involved in the story because of the way it was written and made me feel. I would rate this book a five star read, I loved it so much I just couldn't give it any less. I would definitely recommend it and I won't hesitate to read more from this author. Review by my daughter Joanna, aged 11, for A Book Lover's Emporium. --A Book Lover's Emporium Book Blog

What a fun read! This is a delightful and refreshing book. What starts out as a typical misfit school child story, which in itself would have been interesting given the fun personality of the lead character, quickly transforms into a full-on adventure and a story of self-discovery. I loved the surprise two chapters in, which then took the book into a new depth. But what I really liked about the story was its positive female role models. I think this story has a lot of good messages for children, including: - women can be strong and vulnerable, it's not about one or the other - women can be leaders, and men find this natural and are happy to follow and/or work together - the importance of teamwork, family and friends Finally, I also quite liked the format of the book (if you have the paperbook rather than kindle version); I like how the font changed when Lola was making a list or sharing her immediate thoughts, and I really liked the illustrations - these plus the chapter dividers could actually be colouring book pages, enabling the reader to further immerse themselves into the story if they wanted. --Amazon.co.uk customer

A rare find - a great book for young girls with a feisty, imperfect, strong female heroine with none of the normal female cliches. Not every girl dreams of being a princess (or being saved by a prince!) so it's a happy find to read such a story for young girls (and boys too). The author has perfected the page turning technique where it's impossible to put the book down at the end of each chapter. It a bonus that it also has a strong eco message and I love the look of the book - it's magical without being saccharine. In a sea of pink, plastic tiaras, The Adventures of Lola is a flower crown that converts into a sword! --Amazon.com.au customer

About the Author

The Adventures of Lola is Harley’s first novel. A fierce conservationist, vegetarian and animal lover, Harley spent the past twenty years working in the music and media industry before embracing her creative side and becoming an author.

Harley's early influences include Enid Blyton, Charlotte Bronte, Lewis Carroll, Roald Dahl and C.S Lewis. A self-confessed 'rebel', Harley hopes to inspire future generations of young girls to dream big, stand up for what they believe in, and protect the environment.

Harley was born in Britain and now lives in Australia. She considers herself to be a 'Possie' - half Pomme, half Aussie.<p/P

I loved the surprise two chapters in, which then took the book into a new depth. But what I really liked about the story was its positive female role models. I disagree with the 1-star review below - I think this story has a lot of good messages for children, including:
- women can be strong and vulnerable, it's not about one or the other
- women can be leaders, and men find this natural and are happy to follow and/or work together
- the importance of teamwork, family and friends

As my family are all way passed the children's book stage I haven't had cause to read something like this for years. I wanted to find a book for the grandchildren. Once I started this I had a job to put it down. The author has a good insight into keeping the magic flowing and making the reader want to keep turning the pages to find out what happens next. Well done.

What a fun fast paced read. Our daughter loves Lola and has even started hunting for fairies in our house. This was such a pleasure to read to her, I must admit I quite enjoyed it myself, pure escapism. It's great to see a female lead character with such conviction and so much passion, we were completely swept up in her adventures. I hope there is a second book coming soon because we are hooked! I can't give this any less than five stars, Lola is captivating.
