Title & Author:
Charlie and Lola Series by Lauren Child
What It's About:
Charlie is Lola's older, wiser brother and this series is about their perfectly normal, strictly comical adventures together. Together they learn about life, each other, and themselves through seemingly ordinary things. The books are based on the TV show and there are lots of them in the series.
Just like Charlie always says, Lola really is "small and very funny". We so enjoy reading these and look forward to hunting down new books in the series that we haven't yet read when we go to the library. My favorite character of all is Soren Lorenson, from who(m) I got my biggest laugh. Soren Lorenson is Lola's imaginary friend that she uses to justify doing what she knows she shouldn't and whenever he shows up, be ready to split your sides. Charlie and Lola's interaction is one I appreciate and love, since they are very sweet to and patient with each other, despite their age difference. Read just one of these and you'll come to adore little Lola.
