Charlie and Lola: But Excuse Me That Is My Book

by

Charlie and Lola: But Excuse Me That Is My Book Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- Characters With A Built-In Fan Base: The three previous books about Charlie and Lola have sold very nicely and been award-winners (see page 2), so there will be demand for this book even apart from its connection to the TV series.

- Playhouse Disney: Charlie and Lola will begin airing as part of Playhouse Disney on the Disney Channel on March 21, 2005, in between The Wiggles and Stanley.

- So Real And So Funny: This is an adorably true-to-life series, tapping into the funny ways kids think and interact. Never has there been a more endearingly outspoken character than Lola, whose sweet big brother Charlie knows just how to manage her.

- More Books To Come: Dial and Grosset will regularly be publishing both trade and mass-market books to tie in with the Disney series.

Synopsis:

A sweet, funny lesson in economics as only Lola can teach it

Lola has lots of pocket money and is very excited to buy a new toy in the gift shop on a trip to the zoo. But she spends a little here and there, and before she knows it, she doesn't have enough left for her toy. Big brother Charlie shares his money, but then isn't able to get the book he wanted. With her typical exuberance, when Lola finds this out, she begins saving everything: a tangerine from lunch, bread for the ducks at the pond, and most importantly, her pocket change. Finally, she is able to help out her big brother when he needs a few extra coins.

With a focus on frugality, the latest in the award-winning series is a terrific helper for those just learning about money.

Synopsis:

Charlie and Lola have already won the hearts of readers in three winning books, including I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed. And now they’re quickly gathering more fans as an animated series on the Disney Channel.Adorably true-to-childhood and laugh-out-loud funny, Charlie and Lola chronicles the day-to-day moments and interactions in the life of two extremely endearing siblings.

In this new tale, Lola has become obsessed with Beetles, Bugs, and Butterflies, the best book in the whole world. It’s funny, it has pictures, and it is "very great and extremely very interesting." It’s the only book she wants to take out of the library.What will she do when she discovers that somebody else has borrowed her book?
