There was plenty of exciting twists, mishaps, mayhem, witty narrative,friendships and loveable characters.
A wonderfully uplifting, vivid rich tale that stole my heart.
It was simply a joy to read.
"I loved The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket by Suzanne Lowe." Ray Simmons- Readers Favorite.
When I read a book for children I'm always thinking of children that I know. I know what they are looking for in a book and I know what their parents and grandparents are looking for in a book. Suzanne Lowe's book meets all the requirements. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket will be especially fun for young girls to read because they will identify with the protagonist. Charlotte has had a hard life but is brave,cheerful, positive, and helpful. She strives to do her best, no matter the circumstances, and is sure that things will work out even in her darkest moments. I like her, and I like her story. I'm sure young readers will too.
"The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket by Suzanne Lowe is a marvellous adventure story for children of all ages." Stephen Fisher - Readers Favourite
Ms. Lowe does a superb job of bring this adventure story to life, with wide array of characters and events that are vividly described. Redface, the cook, puts her to work alongside Jasper, the cabin boy. Suzanne Lowe weaves this adventure tale with enough surprises to keep you on the edge of your seat. The story moves along at a near breakneck pace, and there is no let-up in the action. For a book that really isn't very long, it is by no means short on all of the elements that make this book action packed. I was immediately drawn intothe story. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket was just a joy to read from beginning to end, and tough to put down. I would love to see this entertaining masterpiece on the silverscreen someday. The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket by Suzanne Lowe is a page-turner for sure.
From the Author
The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket, is the first book in a series I plan to write about Lotty and her canine friend, Mr Jacks as they go on different adventures together.
I wanted to write a children's adventure story for middle grade readers that featured a strong, likeable female protagonist who had a determined, yet joyful attitude. Someone who learns that even though you may not have full control of your life, you can still be strong and resilient. I also wanted to include some humour and fun in the book. My own two daughters loved reading about pirates and watching movies about pirates when they were younger, however there were rarely any stories about young women as pirates. I wanted to change that. Girls can have as many adventures as boys can and that includes being a pirate!
I hope you enjoyed reading The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket. New adventures for Lotty and Mr Jacks will be available soon! If you have any questions about Lotty, Mr Jacks or my other books please contact me through my website at suzanneloweauthor.com

Now Suzanne turns to writing a children's adventure story for middle grade readers that features ‘a strong, likeable female protagonist who had a determined, yet joyful attitude. Someone who learns that even though you may not have full control of your life, you can still be strong and resilient. I also wanted to include some humour and fun in the book. My own two daughters loved reading about pirates and watching movies about pirates when they were younger, however there were rarely any stories about young women as pirates. I wanted to change that. Girls can have as many adventures as boys can and that includes being a pirate!’ Suzanne informs us that this is the first book in a series about her created character Lotty and her dog Mr Jacks – adventures for the young at heart. If the subsequent books are as enchanting as this book, then we are seeing the rise of a very important children’s/Young Adult novelist.
An excerpt shares the tone of this new book – ‘I woke with a jolt, my heart hammering in my chest like a wild bird trying to escape. I felt alone and afraid. It must be early morning because it was still dark and the air felt cold. Quickly darting my eyes from side to side, I realised with relief that I was still in my bed. I could hear the others breathing rhythmically. Nobody else was awake. Sitting up slowly, feeling a little unsettled, I hugged my knees in tightly to my chest shivering in the crisp morning air. I'd had that same strange dream again - the one where I hear screams and gunfire. Even though I knew it was only a dream, it felt so real. I hugged my knees tighter. What did it mean? I'd had the same dream four times now and all in the last month. Maybe I was going mad! Why did I keep dreaming the same thing? My name is Charlotte, and I'm an orphan. I live in a dark, musty dump of a place called Sevenoaks Home for Children. Not much of a home if you ask me. There's nothing ‘homey’ about it what-so-ever. I'll give you a few examples. First off, we have to share beds. Not a room, that would be okay. I mean actual beds. I share a bed with three other girls. Also, we’re only allowed a luke-warm bath twice a week, and that's after several others have been in it before you, leaving the water a murky grey colour. Not nice. Every day, instead of going to school, we are put to work cleaning, sewing or weeding the garden for most of the daylight hours and get fed limp old vegetables and stale bread for our efforts. Not my idea of home. I bet you don't have to share a bed or get fed stale food in your home, do you? To be honest, I don't mind the sewing, but I really, really hate and detest the weeding. There are these tremendously big blackberry bushes with huge thorns that grow around the edges of the yard. Every few days, we take it in turns to crawl under the bushes, trying not to get spiked, while we pull up these obnoxious weeds that grow underneath. The weeds look so cute with their little green leaves and delicate yellow pom-pom flowers but don't let that fool you. They also have these teeny-weeny little prickles on their stems that you can hardly see, until you've got one lodged in your hand. Then, you really know about it because they sting like mad and itch for days afterwards. Don't even think about complaining about it because you will just get laughed at and sent right back out to the garden and the blackberry bushes again. I know, I tried it. I’ve been here since I was two years old. At least, I think I was two.’
Since we have met our heroine Lotty and the provided synopsis outlines the tale to follow – ‘The first thrilling tale of adventure, friendship and discovery in the Pirate Princess series. Meet Lotty, the brave, young orphan whose life is about to change forever. When Lotty is cast out from the Sevenoaks home for children, she must use all her courage to navigate her new life. On her travels she meets Mr Jacks, a little dog with attitude who accompanies her on her adventures. When they find themselves ship-wrecked, together, they encounter ruthless pirates, hidden treasure and discover the truth about Lotty’s golden locket.’
Well scripted with a fine sense of fantasy and an eye to issues children (especial little girls) face, Suzanne Lowe appears to have arrived as a significant author – and all with her second successful book. Grady Harp, October 18
I felt The Pirate Princess and the Golden Locket, by Suzanne Lowe, is very appropriate adventure for tweens. A more sensitive child may question what happened to the people who did not get off the ship when it tipped as the author kept the focus on Charlotte’s escape. The fast-paced story keeps Charlotte on the move, adding to the adventure. Suzanne Lowe leaves Charlotte with some answers she sought in life, but leaves the reader expecting the next book in this series.
I enjoyed reading the book and would recommend it to everyone. I would advise my younger cousins to read. The author wrote the story so interestingly and well that you plunge into the book from the very beginning and have such feelings and emotions that you are inside.
There is a level of sarcasm and humour that are gentle pulls throughout the story that have you nodding in agreement. A well written adventure.
This girl and her merry band of sidekicks will keep things bright and the adventures and troubles they get into and overcome are varied and many. I am passing this book along to my 10-year-old niece as she loves adventure stories. I think that this will be a great book for her to enjoy.
