Loss de Plott – three magical stories for children & adults alike â¤ï¸ðŸ“š

September 28, 2015

We all have very busy lives, not just us grown ups but children too. My younger son just started Reception and by the early evening after a long day of learning, running & playing he is more than happy to get into his cosy bed and go straight to sleep.

With such busy schedules I think we all need a tiny little bit of magic in our lives to just daydream, and drift away. I find reading to be the best way to escape the day to day routines of life, especially books which can transport you to other worlds.

When I’m choosing books to read to my children I like to choose books from different areas of life too. Funny books to make them laugh, factual books to make them think and magical stories to make them dream.

The trilogy of ‘Loss de Plott’ books are just that – a series of magical stories which are wonderful yet simple and utterly beautiful. Written and illustrated by the very talented Stephan J Myers, the stories are a group of three which follow on from each other.

Each book is as magical and mystical as the  previous one. Loss de Plott is a little girl who has a dream and as we read the wonderfully rhythmic words, we view dreams through the eyes of a child. 

My boys aged 5 and 7 enjoyed these stories immensely. They have extremely vivid imaginations and these stories and illustrations helped ignite their thoughts and dreams even more. They especially liked Loss’s teddy bear, as they both have their own cuddly toy they snuggle up to at night. I cannot wait to read ‘A Bear called Ted’ to them, the latest Loss de Plott book to be released.

When I was a child my favourite stories were by Beatrix Potter, stories where animals could talk and were called Peter and Jemima, in these stories there is also that element of magic, wonder and imagination. Elements of life needed by adults and children alike.

I love this quote taken from The Colour Red,

“To those for whom the magic still works; may age never dull your imagination.”
