Description

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.

"I am mainly interested in peculiar things that happen in real life rather than fantasy," she says of her books, which often tap into her own memories of being a middle child.The daughter of two art teachers, Lauren Child went to two art schools, worked as an assistant to the artist Damien Hirst, and designed an offbeat line of lampshades before beginning a career in children¹s books.
