The Lotterys More or Less
Family celebrations are difficult to organize at the best of times, but when your family is made up of four parents, seven children and one grandfather, they're practically impossible . . . The second warm and funny children's book from international bestselling author Emma Donoghue.
Sumac Lottery is the fifth of seven kids who share their big house with four parents, one grandfather and five pets. At nine, she's the keeper of her family's traditions - from Pow Wow to Holi, Carnival to Hogmanay, Sumac's on guard to make sure that no Lottery celebration is forgotten.
But this winter all Sumac's plans go awry when a Brazilian visitor overstays his welcome. A terrible ice storm grounds all flights, so one of her dads and her favourite brother can't make it home from India. And then the power starts going out across the city . . .
The Lotterys More or Less is bestselling author Emma Donoghue's second novel about a thoroughly modern family, illustrated by Caroline Hadilaksono.
