Charlie and Lola: I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato Board Book

Written by Lauren Child

Part of the Charlie and Lola Series

Charlie and Lola: I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato Board Book Synopsis

A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about fussy eating from Children's Laureate Lauren Child - now in a brilliant board book! 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

Charlie and Lola: I Will Not Ever Never Eat a Tomato Board Book Press Reviews

Quirky imagination and wry humour make this a wonderful book * Time Out * A fun look at fussy eating * Mother and baby.co.uk * [Child] brings an eclecticism and freshness to her work that appeals directly to children * Financial Times * Only Lauren Child could come up with an idea as successfully wacky as this -- Nicholas Tucker * The Independent * Teatime will never be the same again after this glorious book by the Smarties Prize-winning author * Daily Mail * Brilliant design and a delight to share * Guide to Literary Resources * A brilliantly designed book from cover, typography and illustration to endpapers and will amuse all those fussy eaters out there * Literacy & Learning * A fresh and very funny picture book * Bookseller * Your offspring will be drawn in by the off-the-wall visuals that mix line drawings and patterns with photographs, creating a world that is absolutely grounded in reality yet also wildly imaginative * The Guardian * A wonderful corrective for picky eaters * The Sunday Times * Brilliant design and a delight to share * NLA Guide to Literary Resources * 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 * A paean to the early resistance years that are toddlerdom * The Guardian * A mischievous wit and cunning simplicity which, although it may have baffled some traditionalists, is still instantly embraced and understood by children * Books For Keeps * A fun look at the problem of fussy eating * motherandbaby.co.uk * A superb book to make you laugh out loud * Bookseller * So good, it's exhilarating * Independent * Brilliant * Sunday Telegraph *
