A classic Charlie and Lola board book story about starting school from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

Charlie's little sister Lola is nearly big enough to go to school... but Lola is not so sure. She thinks it probably would be useful to read and write and count, but she doesn't really have time for lessons - she's much too busy doing extremely important things at home. And anyway, Lola's invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, is slightly nervous about going to school.

This wonderfully imaginative tale of starting-school worries is perfect for sharing with the very youngest Charlie and Lola fans.
