A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about fussy eating from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

Lola will not peas. In fact she won't eat carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, cabbage or baked beans. And she will absolutely not ever NEVER eat a tomato. But when Charlie explains that peas are actually green drops from Greenland, and carrots are really orange twiglets from Jupiter, even Lola is tempted to clear her plate...

Told with true Lauren Child style, this warm and funny picture book will make dinner time fun for even the fussiest of eaters!

Winner of the Kate Greenaway Medal

One of my favourite books for children...The story is compelling and the pictures enchanting, but the typography is not what you would expect. The letters vary in shape and size, some lines are straight and others meander across the page. Young children love this; those who cannot yet read pick out the letters; those who can, love the variation and delight at being able to cope with it. — Sue Walker, Books For Keeps
