About the Book

Internationally bestselling author Emma Donoghue's first children's book follows the domestic adventures of a large, rumbustious, multicultural family. The Lotterys, as they call themselves, are headed up by a lesbian couple and a gay couple who joined forces to create a family, won a lottery jackpot and moved into a Victorian Gothic mansion in Toronto, where their enormous brood is home-schooled. It all seems perfectly normal to nine-year-old Sumac until their hitherto obscure grandfather Grumps comes to stay, upending the Lotterys' already chaotic family life.

The Lotterys Plus One By Emma Donoghue

Critical Praise

“Full of clever names and wordplay, this engaging tale is moving without veering into sentimentality. For all the Lotterys’ apparent eccentricity, the novel delves into universal themes of family relationships that will resonate with readers from all backgrounds.” —Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Donoghue vividly captures the Lotterys’ chaotic but always loving home” —Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“A timely and funny reading experience. . . . An ideal option for “Penderwicks” fans.” —School Library Journal

“A big, boisterous book with a lot of heart that speaks to the possibility and necessity of seeing diversity in stories. Highly Recommended.” —CM Magazine

“[Donoghue’s] fans will recognize not only her gift for representing a child’s point of view, but also her knack for showing how a family, no matter how small or large, develops its own language, even its own culture.” —New York Times
