Lucy will warm the hearts of readers with her adorable and mischievous behavior, and motivate them to try out doing naughty and adventurous things at home and otherwise. The style of writing is simple, laced with humor, and all the characters are portrayed well so that they remain in the hearts of readers for a long time.
