Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
Charlie and Marv, two elementary students, need to create an invention and quick, as the invention project is due the very next day of school. Desperate to invent something that has never been invented, they begin to brainstorm possible inventions, only to come up against some flaw in or obstacle against their creations. Amidst their creative work, Charlie's little inquisitive sister Lola is working at being an inventor herself and often adding her not-so-appreciated opinion to the boys. After two failed attempts, the boys are growing frantic but in the end, it is Lola that saves the day. This early reader is based on the original "Charlie and Lola" adventures. The writer's use of first-person narrative allows the story to be told in the words of an eight-year-old child. This will most likely allow young readers to immediately relate to and sympathize with Charlie. The delightfully animated and childlike illustrations add emotion to the plight of the struggling young inventors. At the beginning of the story, a child's definition of invention is given which teachers might find valuable. Overall, young children will find this an entertaining read that may serve to inspire their own creativity. Reviewer: Justina Engebretson
