Not familiar with our small and very funny girl, Lola? Let me enlighten you. My daughter first found, “I will never NOT EVER eat a tomato,” at our local county library, thanks to a librarian’s recommendation. We fell in love and now and forever eat toe-mah-toes, or rather moon-squirters, at our house. We've explored the volumes and laughed as Lola's issues are so close to home. We were ready to test the latest book by Lauren Child.
In “Slightly Invisible,” Lola wants to join big brother, Charlie, in search of strange and tricky creatures. Charlie would rawther that Lola would disappear. Invisibility is the spec-ial-i-ty of Soren Lorenson, Lola’s imaginary friend. Lola’s ingenuity and brilliance shine through once again as she shows us just how to coax a tricky creature to tea.
We loved searching for a shimmer of Soren among the textures and patterns of the artwork. If you come to our flat for story time, all the reading must be done with a British accent and, of course, we’ll provide the biscuits and pink milk.
Candlewick Press generously donated a Charlie & Lola gift pack to TodaysMama and is providing one for the Giveaway as well. I’ve been making my own pink milk for years and happily claim these opinions as my own. Comment away! The contest closes on Friday, September 2 at 5p MST.
