A classic Charlie and Lola board book story about tricky bedtimes, from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

Charlie has this little sister Lola. Sometimes he has to try and get her to go to bed. This is a hard job because Lola likes to stay up late. Lola says, "I am not slightly sleepy at 6 or 7 or 8. I am still wide awake at 9 and not at all tired at 10, 11 and 12 and I will probably still be perky at even 13 o'clock in the morning."

This wonderfully imaginative bedtime tale is perfect for sharing with the very youngest Charlie and Lola fans.
