Book Description

27 Oct 2005 Charlie and Lola
Charlie and Lola, first seen in I Will Not Ever NEVER Eat a Tomato, are set to be stars of the screen and page. A major animation acquisition for the BBC and first airing on prime time children's TV in October 2005, Charlie and Lola are set for superstardom! Lola loves dogs. So when Charlie takes Lola and her friend Lotta to the park with his friend Marv and Marv's dog Sizzles, Lola is thrilled. Marv lets her and Lotta look after Sizzles on the promise that they don't let him off the lead. But Lola and Lotta are so over-excited that, of course, they let Sizzles go and then have a panicky search for him all round the park. Imagine their relief when Sizzles appears until he's followed by an identical dog. They know that Sizzles is extremely very clever and so can tell which dog is the right Sizzles - he's the one that he sits down when they tell him. Yet another crisis averted for Lola!

5.0 out of 5 stars Just brilliant 26 Jan 2006
By A Customer
My little girl is 2 and a half and adores Charlie and Lola on TV. We bought her this book for Christmas and it is read most nights. I adore reading it, it is so hilarious and so typical of how small children use the english language. When Lola and her friend Lotta look after Marv's dog Sizzles, he gets loose and is missing briefly. When they shout for him, 2 dogs appear both the same breed. Lola says " Now there are 2 Sizzleses" It is a gorgeous book written from the way a small child sees the world. A delight to read as a parent. My daughter has memerised most of it and reads it to me too! Buy it!

2.0 out of 5 stars We Honestly can look after your dog 9 April 2006
This is not as good as the rest of the Charlie and Lola books. Although it says that it was written by Lauren Child the flyleaf states that the text was compiled from a script for the TV show and doesn't list Lauren Child as the author at all. The Charlie and Lola books are great - but watch out for the TV spin off's - they lack the flow and the feel of the "real" books.

My mother bought me this book as a Valentine's present and even though I'm nearly 21, I love Charlie and Lola. My sister recently received a dog so I chose this book because I absolutely adore dogs. The storyline is concise while Lauren Child's sketchy illustrations combined with realistic features give the book some added sophistication. I also like the activity pack and the three original Charlie and Lola books as well as the cartoon series on CBeebies.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! 28 Dec 2007
I love Tomato/Not Sleepy/Too Small for School - but this book was a real disappointment: repetitive and lacking in charm (so much so that I instantly turned to the flyleaf to see what was going on). It has none of the wonderfully childlike quirkiness of the 'real' Charlie and Lola books. I will not be reading it again.
