About the Author
Lauren Child is the best-selling author and illustrator of the picture books about Charlie and Lola (who also star in their own TV series) as well as the series of award-winning books about the irrepressible Clarice Bean, where the character of Ruby Redfort was first introduced. Since then she has been inundated with letters from fans asking for Ruby Redfort novels, so to all those fans? ?here it is! Lauren Child lives in London. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Parents be warned - it's not a Lauren Child original, but a re-working of one of the scripts from the TV series. This seems to have lead to some rather monotonous writing - lots of 'Lola says', 'Lotta said' - which loses some of the immediacy of the story. The illustrations are also kept separate from the text, which some adults might prefer, but I find it makes the presentation a bit boring.
This said, my two-year-old daughter is a great fan of Charlie and Lola and has enjoyed this story a lot. If I do get bored with reading it, we can always turn to the televised version from time to time!
