Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lola is not so sure about school. After all, why would she need to count higher than ten when she never eats more than ten cookies at a time? And why write letters when you have a telephone? Once again, it's up to ever-patient big brother Charlie to persuade Lola that school is worthwhile — and that her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, will be welcome, too. Lauren Child's delightful sibling duo returns to tackle first-day-of-school jitters with their own special brand of energy and humor.

Review:

"Each turn of the page brings an interesting layout for both the text and illustrations, and there is just the right touch of humor. You will want to add this to your list of 'beginning school' books." Children's Literature

Review:

"Incorporating photos, fabric, and appealingly childlike cartoon renderings of the siblings, the mixed-media illustrations are a visual treat of color and texture. This is a winner either as a read-aloud or for independent perusal." School Library Journal

Synopsis:

Charlie and Lola now star in these paperback editions of their award-winning books, each filled with their own special brand of energy and humor. Full color.

About the Author

Lauren Child is the author-illustrator of many children's books, including the Charlie and Lola books I AM NOT SLEEPY AND I WILL NOT GO TO BED and I WILL NEVER NOT EVER EAT A TOMATO, which won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. She is also the creator of a quirky series of picture books about Clarice Bean: CLARICE BEAN, THAT'S ME; CLARICE BEAN, GUESS WHO'S BABYSITTING; and WHAT PLANET ARE YOU FROM, CLARICE BEAN?, as well as the illustrated novel UTTERLY ME, CLARICE BEAN. "I am mainly interested in peculiar things that happen in real life rather than fantasy," she says of her books, which often tap into her own memories of being a middle child.The daughter of two art teachers, Lauren Child went to two art schools, worked as an assistant to the artist Damien Hirst, and designed an offbeat line of lampshades before beginning a career in children's books. She lives in London.
