Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
Lola, the perky young heroine of Lola at the Library, returns in another tale to support libraries and books. The very simple text in large type describes her Saturday trips to the library with her father; then what happens at home as he and her mother read her the stories in the books she has chosen. The day after each story, Monday through Friday, Lola's imagination takes her there. One day she is a princess. After a story about a journey, she takes her friends on "fantastic trips." Each tale leads Lola to a new related imaginary adventure with her friends or family. With acrylic paints, Beardshaw creates attractive but simplified images of youngsters and Lola's helpful parents. There are just enough props for the contexts: bookcases full of books in the library; a couple of animal toys to be passengers on an international journey; tools to fix the dollhouse. The family is African American; the story is universal. Reviewer: Ken Marantz and Sylvia Marantz
School Library Journal
PreS-K—Lola and her daddy visit the library on Saturday, where Lola finds some "excellent" books. Each day, after she and one of her parents read another book, Lola's playtime reflects the characters and stories. For example, after reading a book about a fairy princess, Lola wears a fancy dress and becomes a "fabulous fairy princess." After reading about fierce tigers, Lola chases her friend around the jungle, and so on. Each day unfolds as a reflection of the last book read, and each page of Anna McQuinn's book (2010) is a delightful adventure. Music by Peter Calo provides a joyous background to Nikki James's enthusiastic and expressive narration. In most instances, descriptions include an interesting vocabulary word such as "amazing," or "fantastic," or "cappuccino"; unfortunately, when Lola is a farmer like Old MacDonald, her cow has a "boo-boo." Rosalind Beardshaw's bright and colorful illustrations lend much to the story, aptly depicting the African-American family sharing happy reading times and Lola' creative playtimes. It is helpful to have the book handy when, in the end, Lola becomes a "wild and wicked monster"-in the style of Maurice Sendak. Book lovers and anyone with an imagination will love this sequel to Lola at the Library (2006, both Charlesbridge).—MaryAnn Karre, Horace Mann and Thomas Jefferson Elementary Schools, Binghamton, NY
