Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leona Illig
Charlie's little sister Lola is practicing somersaults for a circus show. Charlie helps Lola and encourages her to practice so that she can do them by herself. While Lola and her friend Lotta practice, Charlie and his friend Marv play soccer. Charlie falls and hurts himself. He goes to the hospital and comes home with a cast on his arm. Charlie is sad because of all the things he cannot do because of his broken arm, and Lola is concerned about her brother. She cheers him up by becoming his nurse and even finds a way to involve Charlie in her circus show. When Charlie laughs at her performance, she knows that he is getting better. This small, twenty-two page book is part of the "Charlie and Lola" franchise that includes a television show, Internet site, video, music, stage show, and merchandise. The text is based on a script written by Bridget Hurst, and the illustrations are from the television animation. The 3-D effect of some of the illustrations is interesting, and the colors and patterns are bold. The story, however, is too slight to hold up on its own and will probably appeal mainly to youngsters who are already familiar with and enjoy the "Charlie and Lola" television show and its associated media.
