A classic Charlie and Lola story from Children's Laureate Lauren Child - in a brilliant board book, perfect for younger readers!
Charlie and his friend Marv are in search of strange and tricky creatures. They would like to search without Charlie's little sister Lola bothering them. But Lola wants to join in.
Luckily, Lola and her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, know exactly how to catch strange and tricky creatures. All they need is a tea set, a little cart and a rabbit. (And, of course, one or three drops of pink milk.)
This hilariously inventive tale will encourage your little ones to go on their own imaginative, make-believe adventures. (As well as striking a chord with frustrated siblings everywhere!)
