Lauren Child's inimitable brother-sister pair takes on another childhood
bugaboo — the first day of school — with the help of Charlie's
resourcefulness and Lola's imaginary friend.
Lola is not so sure about school. After all, why would she need to count
higher than ten when she never eats more than ten cookies at a time? And why write letters when you have a telephone? Once again, it's up to ever-patient big brother Charlie to persuade Lola that school is worthwhile — and that her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, will be welcome, too. Lauren Child's delightful sibling duo returns to tackle first-day-of-school jitters with their own special brand of energy and humor.
Lauren Child is the bestselling author and illustrator of the picture books about Charlie and Lola (who also star in their own TV series) as well as the series of award-winning books about the irrepressible Clarice Bean, where the character of Ruby Redfort was introduced. Since then she has been inundated with letters from fans asking for Ruby Redfort novels, and it worked because this is book two in the series! Lauren Child lives in London.
