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!
