Even though we live in London, my five year old daughter adored this book. Charlie and Lola go on (what must have been an exhausting!) day trip to London and visit lots of major tourist attractions - Buckingham Palce, Trafalgar Square, the Natural History Museum, Big Ben, the National Portrait Gallery, the Tower of London, the Royal Observatory and take a riverboat on the Thames. If you are planning a trip to London this would be a wonderful book to introduce your children to some of the places you might like to visit. It even has two postcards at the back, which your child can send while they are there. A really great book for children, with lots of Charlie and Lola humour.

The book itself is spot on, so don't let this put you off as it did arrive and it was in excellent condition.

Having had many items from Amazon I thought it would be a quick delivery, and in time for my daughters birthday six weeks later. To be fair the despatch and delivery period straddled a few months shall we say, but I never expected it to be that long. It turned up after about seven weeks. Had I known I would have joined the Waterstones website and had it delivered within a week at the same price, but I was pushed for time, next time I'll make time. So be warned, when it says despatch and delivery start next month, that's what it means, at least.

My 3 years old boy love Charlie and Lola and this book is a great introduction to show him London, where we live, and make plans to visit all the places Charlie and Lola went over. In the book, Charlie and Lola are in a school trip to visit London, first they think of all the things they will need in the trip, camera, food, money.. and then in London they have to hold hands with a school partner so they don't get lost (my kid loves this, and he always mention it to me) and they go around to the main landmarks in London, Buckingham palace, Big Ben, National gallery, Trafalgar square, Planetarium, boat in the Thames, Science Museum and London Eye. It gave me the idea of a day trip getting a boat from the Tate to the Planetarium in Greenwich. In the end of the book there is a resume of all the places they have visited with a tick box beside it. Very clever idea, now we can tag the places we've been to.
I have also bought this book to friends with young kids living abroad to show where we live. I totally recommend this book.

Not as good as other Charlie and Lola books. It's really just a list of places in London to visit Might be good to accompany a visit to London, so I am saving it for such an occasion ....t.

This isn't really a story so much as a list of London 'sights' shoehorned into a very thin narrative. A bit disappointing - not up to the usual Charlie and Lola story standards.

I ordered this book for my 3 year old son as he loves Charlie and Lola at the moment. The book is absolutely lovely, it's fun and educational. It has been a big success with my son. Having not been to London with him yet it's been a great way to introduce him to the capital and some of it's land marks. My personal favorite section of the book is the additions at the end. They've included a check list of the land marks visited in the story for when you make your own trip to London and a couple of postcards along with a guide on how to use them.

A brilliant book to teach younger children about the sights of London,using well known Charlie and Lola characters to keep them interested.

I am a big fan of Charlie and Lola. My grandchildren love them, usually. This was not so much a delightful story as a rather tedious travelogue of London. They walked off in the middle of the story telling and I can't say I blame them! Drawings are charming, as ever and it has a kind of educational something about it, but not up to standard, I fear.

It has been really useful for helping my year 2's to learn the landmarks of London.

They really enjoy the language used and ask me to read it as their end of day story everytime they find it in the box.

A fun read with a good whirl wind tour of the must see sites of London written with lota's chatter but narrated by her older brother! Which makes it even more amusing also gets a few interesting facts in too. Makes me want to take my children to London.
