Lauren Child is one of today's most talented and innovative children's writer/illustrators. Winner of the Nestle Smarties Book Prize and the Kate Greenaway Medal, she is best known for creating the characters Clarice Bean and the BAFTA-award-winning Charlie and Lola. She is co-creator of The Princess and the Pea and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 1-During a trip to the library, Charlie helps his younger sister search for her favorite book, Beetles, Bugs, and Butterflies. Lola is dismayed when they cannot find it, and though Charlie tries to distract her with other titles, but nothing measures up to her beloved tome. He patiently explains to Lola that it's not her book because it belongs to the library, meaning everyone can have a chance to read it. Although she is horrified when another girl walks by carrying the sought-after title, Lola reluctantly agrees to try Cheetahs and Chimpanzees instead, and ultimately decides that it might actually be the most best book in the whole wide world. The author does an excellent job of capturing the way youngsters think and act, and Lola epitomizes the typical child who doesn't quite understand the concept of borrowing. The story flows at a comfortable pace, and the language is easy to comprehend. The collage artwork is charming. Pastel backgrounds blend with brightly patterned materials and photo clips to provide a colorful setting for the appealing cartoon characters. An excellent addition to picture-book collections.-Kristen M. Todd, Middle Country Public Library, Centereach, NY
