Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
K-Gr 1—Lola and Lotta are best best friends—until Evie moves to town. Lola feels left out as she watches her friend playing and spending lots of time with the new girl. Not to worry, though. By the end of this saccharine tale, Lola and Lotta are reunited with a little help from Charlie. No real lesson about friendship is clearly defined. This "based upon" book does not maintain the witty charm of Child's original creations. While it may draw fans of the TV series, it remains an additional purchase for most libraries.—Jasmine L. Precopio, Fox Chapel Area School District, Pittsburgh, PA
Children's Literature - Candace Deisley
Charlie and Lola, characters created by Lauren Child, are siblings who are familiar to most children. Charlie tells this story, which deals with his little sister and her very best friend, Lotta. They share everything: lunch and looking at the tadpoles in the fishpond. And they always go together when the teacher tells them to line up. One day a new girl appears in class, and Lotta is asked to look after her. She shows Evie all around the classroom, and even shares her lunch with her. Evie and Lotta play together in the schoolyard, and Lotta invites her new friend to her home. Lola has to deal with this crisis, and her brother helps by swinging her in the air. Later at the fishpond, Lola and Lotta realize they see things in the same way, while Evie drifts off and finds a new friend. This upbeat title deals with a common experience, and will prove useful in groups of preschoolers and primary graders. Reviewer: Candace Deisley
