First of the “Potion of Belladonna” Series. Recommended for 11+ years.
A Dash of Belladonna was short-listed for best Youth Novel for the Sir Julius Vogel Awards in 2018.
“A Dash of Belladonna is a quirky and original book with lots to recommend it. Lottie is a great character, who is constantly trying to be independent, and getting into trouble. And the book is very humorous, written mostly as a series of letters, which captures Lottie’s enthusiasm and various states of mind as things fall apart around her. I also enjoyed the New Zealand references, and thought it was a nice touch that Lottie comes to New Zealand Aotearoa to have her adventures.” ~ Karen McKenzie – NZ Booklovers
“Here is a book full of magic and awe, humour and excitement, brought to us through Lottie’s exuberant prose. A zany book, full of narrative zest and high adventure.” ~ Mike Johnson
