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 her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, is slightly nervous about going to school on his own.
This third title in the classic Charlie and Lola picture book series deals sympathetically with childrens' fears surrounding the first day at school.
This utterly special 10th anniversary edition of this brilliant Charlie and Lola book comes with a free four-panel frieze - perfect for any fan's bedroom wall!
