The Lotterys Plus One
fullDescription

The bestselling author of the adult novel Room bursts onto the children's book scene with this cross between Little Miss Sunshine, Cheaper by the Dozen, and Modern Family. Sumac Lottery is nine years old and the self-proclaimed "good girl" of her (VERY) large, (EXTREMELY) unruly family. And what a family the Lotterys are: four parents, children both adopted and biological, and a menagerie of pets, all living and learning together in a sprawling house called Camelottery. Then one day, the news breaks that one of their grandfathers is suffering from dementia and will be coming to live with them. And not just any grandfather; the long dormant "Grumps," who fell out with his son so long ago that he hasn't been part of any of their lives. Suddenly, everything changes. Sumac has to give up her room to make the newcomer feel at home. She tries to be nice, but prickly Grumps's clearly disapproves of how the Lotterys live: whole grains, strange vegetables, rescue pets, a multicultural household...He's worse than just tough to get along with—Grumps has got to go! But can Sumac help him find a home where he belongs?

        Starred review from December 19, 2016
        One of the most diverse families readers are likely to meet, the Lotterys—whose name was inspired by the winning lottery ticket that made a dream for a family come true—are four longtime friends turned coparents (a lesbian couple and a gay one) and seven homeschooled children of various racial backgrounds, quirks, and talents. The family enjoys a harmoniously unconventional existence in its 32-room Toronto mansion until the estranged father of one of the Lottery parents arrives for a visit of undetermined length. The change in dynamics caused by the elderly man’s stubbornness and conservatism is especially hard on nine-year-old Sumac, who is assigned to be his personal guide. In a drily funny story about adjusting to new situations, Donoghue (Room) vividly captures the Lotterys’ chaotic but always loving home through a flurry of inside jokes, banter, and nicknames. If some readers have difficulty keeping the members of the large family straight, Hadilaksono’s lively David Roberts–esque illustrations, not all seen by PW, provide a colorful guide to the Lotterys’ wonderfully offbeat home. Ages 8–12. Author’s agent: Kathleen Anderson, Anderson Literary. Illustrator’s agent: Rebecca Sherman, Writers House.

      • content: Th�r�se Plummer energetically introduces this large multicultural, diverse family: two gay dads, two lesbian moms, and seven biological and adopted kids, each named after a tree. After winning Toronto's lottery, they change their last names to Lottery, buy a massive house, and decide to live a home-schooled, off-the-grid lifestyle, engagingly described by Plummer. She deftly creates varied personalities and accents--for example, MaxiMum's lilting Jamaican accent, PapaDum's Indian accent, and adorable kid and teen voices. Listeners will immediately hear their lives change again when PopCorn's father--called Grumps by the kids--comes to live with them. Plummer's standout creations are Grumps, with his wit and Scottish brogue, and 9-year-old Sumac, who tells this story and is at once charming and cunning. Audio is the perfect vehicle to capture this bevy of delightful characters. S.G.B. � AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine
