Lottie Paris may be precocious, but she still knows how to act like a kid. She dresses up, she plays on the slide, she eats cookies instead of vegetables. She has a great imagination and sees the possibilities in the simplest pleasures. Plus, she's sassy, so there's no chance of getting bored.

Join Lottie Paris in her world and you'll never look at yours the same again!
