A classic Charlie and Lola picture book from Children’s Laureate Lauren Child.

Charlie and his friend Marv are in search of strange and tricky creatures. They would like to search without Charlie’s little sister Lola bothering them. But Lola wants to join in.

Luckily, Lola and her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, know exactly how to catch strange and tricky creatures. All they need is a tea set, a little cart and a rabbit. (And, of course, one or three drops of pink milk.)

With a gentle message about learning to play together, this hilariously inventive tale will encourage children to go on their own make-believe adventures!

You can't beat a Charlie and Lola.

Funny story about the power of imagination is, as usual, complemented by Lauren Child's excellent collage illustrations.
As entertaining as ever.
