We received this today and it had to be read immediately!
Georgie loved it and loved repeating the funny things that Lola says.
It is very cleverly written and encourages the reader/listener to think imaginatively.
Them pages are fun with big pictures and text in different sizes and layouts.
I don’t think Charlie and Lola will ever get boring!

My daughter screamed when this arrived she is a huge Charlie and Lola fan. She is starting to read herself so was excited to sit and hold the book herself. She loves the bright illustrations and follows the words as they go all over the pages.
Fantastic book for engagement and enjoyment.
Lola has always wanted a dog, knows everything about them and what she wants in a dog. Her parents won’t let her have one but she does end up with a new pet called snow puff. 

Another great book in thecharlie and Lola series

Leo chose this book in the library after we read it at 'The Art of Lauren Child' exhibition. He loves all of the books we've read so far in this series and this book looks set to become one of his favorites. He really enjoyed the characters and the funny relationship between Charlie and Lola. In this story he especially liked the peculiar features Lola wanted her dog to have, that had him laughing out loud.

My daughter chose this from the library. She enjoys Charlie and lola books, and she had never read this one. She loves dogs so she enjoyed this story, about Lola wanting a dog. She enjoyed looking at the illustrations, and some bits she thought were funny. She guessed what would happen at the end of the book. We have read this story a few times, and she enjoys it just as much each time.

I read it to Little One aged 3 aged 3

5 stars
My eldest daughter is a fan of Lauren Child's work so when we received this book she was so happy. 

True to Charlie and Lola style, the book will have you in giggles as Lola is just so funny. She wants to have a pet dog but actually everything she wants in a pet doesn't quite match with a dog but with a rabbit. 

There is lots of dialogue in this book between Charlie and Lola so school aged children would have ample opportunity to practice reading aloud and of course you could always share the spoken words with your child. 

For some three years the length of the book may be a tad long however, the brilliant illustrations combining print, different medias and lots of fun will have them engrossed. Let's not forget the brilliant things Lola says. 

My daughter seemed absolutely, pretty delighted with this book. (A little Lola impersonation there, I couldn't resist)

This is a lovely big, and bright book. My son used to watch Charlie and Lola so I knew he would enjoy the book. Like the characters, my son also dreams of having a pet dog so he loved this book. The book is written in a fun and engaging manner. It is really runny in parts and the end has a very funny twist! Also pics are fab!

Charlie and Lola seem to have an enduring appeal and despite my little girl not being a huge fan of the TV show she was very enthusiastic about this book. From the outside it's big and bright and pleasing to hold with embossed letters on the outside which makes it very inviting to read. Inside the pages are busy with sketches, drawings and the very particular style of the characters. I love the very pedantic nature of Lola and I think it appeals to kids. She speaks very straightforwardly about what she wants and how she sees the world. It was quite funny at the end and we both laughed together. The only problem with it is that my daughter now wants a dog too!

Both my son and I love Charlie and Lola and were very excited to win this to add to our collection. The writing and the illustrations are lovely as always, and Lola is still as funny as in earlier books! I thought the ending was nicely done but I don't think my son thought it was quite as amusing as I did...maybe at 6 and a half he is just starting to outgrow these stories. I do hope not!
