Charlie and Lola: Slightly Invisible

Written by Lauren Child

Part of the Charlie and Lola Series

Charlie and Lola: Slightly Invisible Synopsis

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.) With a gentle message about learning to play together, this hilariously inventive tale will encourage children to go on their own make-believe adventures! 'A witty book that reminds us why we fell in love with Charlie and Lola.' Junior
