This is the first book I read by Lauren Child and I loved it. Here is a stubborn girl (Lola) who has a long list of hates but gives no indication of what she might like. Fortunately her older brother Charlie is not fazed. You don’t like rice, peas, carrots (rabbits eat those), fish-fingers… No problem! Charlie won’t be serving any of those. Instead Charlie serves cloud fluff and mermaid fish-fingers!
My little angel loves looking at the pictures of stubborn Lola and then trying to copy Lola’s expressions. I think what she really loves however is the way Lola outsmarts Charlie.
The other day, Sumayya gave Little Angel a snack as she left.
‘What did she give you?’ I asked Little Angel.
‘Chocolate drops,’ she said showing me a box of organic raisins!
