“Loretta Mason Potts” was written by Mary Chase, a former journalist who was born and lived in Denver. She worked for the Rocky Mountain News, as well as having written 14 plays, including the famous “Harvey”. She wrote two children’s books, including “Loretta Mason Potts”.
In “Loretta Mason Potts”, Colin Mason is minding his own business when he overhears his neighbors discussing a sister who he had never heard of. A few days later, when his mother brings this “awful, awful, bad, bad, bad girl, Loretta Mason Potts” home, he is anything but pleased. He would do anything to get rid her. However, when he catches her walking into her clothes closet, he can’t help but follow. What the children find there will affect the entire Mason family. But will the change be for better or for worse?
I recommend this book for ages 7+, because the plot is easy to understand and the content is fun and interesting for all ages, including adult. However, readers beware: some of the phrases and ways they think about things are a bit old-fashioned.
