LISA AND LOTTIE by Erish Katner


Email this review


A modern mid European speciality, by the author of the famous Emil and the which we understand, has been translated here and there some twenty-five However, in spite of the author's fresh buoyant style, this story of a pair of twins and their divorced parents presents a questionable utilization of the divorce problem for this age group. In a vacation home for little girls, a strange meeting takes place when ""jet-propelled"" Lisa come face to face with demure Lottie who later proven to be Lisa's identical twin of whom her father had kept her in ignorance. Some brave manqusrading when the sisters change places and personalities, brings the divorced parents together. The shenanigans of the little girls against the opulent upper-class background are engaging, but for children caught in the divorce situation, this easy, solution to the adult problem may produce frustrating and even heart-breaking reactions To be handles with care.
