An absolutely brilliant board book edition of this classic Charlie and Lola story about starting-school worries.

A classic Charlie and Lola story about starting-school worries, from Children's Laureate Lauren Child - now in a brilliant board book edition!

Charlie's little sister Lola is nearly big enough to go to school - but Lola is not so sure. She thinks it probably would be useful to read and write and count, but she doesn't really have time for school - she's much too busy doing extremely important things at home. And, besides, Lola's invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, is slightly nervous about going to school on his own . . .

This tale of first-day-at-school worries addresses childrens' fears with warmth, humour, and a lot of fun. This is the board book edition of the classic picture book.

As seen on CBeebies!

Over three million Charlie and Lola books have been sold worldwide. Look out for other classic stories:
