Slightly Invisible by Lauren Child

The Lovereading4Kids comment

An absolutely new and completely original Charlie and Lola picture book in paperback, from the award-winning and bestselling author and illustrator, Lauren Child.


Slightly Invisible by Lauren Child

Charlie and friend Marv are in search of strange and tricky creatures. And they would like to search without Lola bothering and interrupting. Luckily, Lola knows exactly how to catch strange and tricky creatures and enlists a little bit of help from her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, and, of course, one or three drops of pink milk.
