Charlie and Lola: I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed

A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about tricky bedtimes from Children’s Laureate Lauren Child – now in a brilliant board book!

Charlie has this little sister Lola. Sometimes he has to try and get her off 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.”

Told with true Lauren Child style, this warm and funny picture book will make bedtime fun for even the most reluctant of children.

As seen on CBeebies!
