Tottie and Dot

USD $17.99

Tottie and Dot are two little girls who live side by side. Life is very peaceful until one day the girls begin competing with each other to create the best house. As the story unfolds, jealousy takes hold and their competitive spirit gets increasingly out of control until ultimately, things collapse in a disastrous heap.

Will Tottie and Dot realise the importance of their friendship before it’s too late? Each girl’s house is shown over a series of exquisitely illustrated double-page spreads — Tottie on the left and Dot on the right. The detailed illustrations perfectly complement the simple story line and will provide children aged 4–7 with hours of entertainment, as well as a valuable life lesson!

Kids Book Review
Tottie and Dot is a gorgeous story for little girls about friendship, a lovely book for young children to read and enjoy, and, for me, a very special reminder that I have wonderful friends, and one friend in particular, who make my life a little brighter because we get to share everyday pleasures, side by side.”

My Little Bookcase
Tottie and Dot is a visual and literary feast. It is filled with incredibly cute illustrations in rich, pretty colours and the sweetest of nouns (marshmallow tea, apricot sandwiches, gumballs, strawberries and a lemon drop tree). This book was a delight to read for a mother and daughter who love all things lace and floral, tea and cake, dresses and parties”

Bookseller and Publisher
the simple text in Tottie and Dot highlights the futility of ‘keeping up with the Joneses’ and that it is simpler and easier to live in harmony with your neighbours.”

Buzz Words
