A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about sibling rivalry, the imagination and invisible friends, from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

Charlie and friend Marv are in search of strange and tricky creatures. And they would like to search without Charlie's little sister Lola bothering and interrupting. But Lola knows EXACTLY how to catch strange and tricky creatures, and enlists a little bit of help from her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, and, of course, one or three drops of pink milk.
