  • (167 reviews)

    Charlie is Lola’s big brother, and it is a BIG job being Lola’s big brother. She doesn’t want to eat her vegetables, or go to school, or to bed. Lola is very good at coming up with reasons for why she shouldn’t have to do any of these things, Charlie is even better at coming up with fun and imaginative reasons why she should.
