About the Author

Lauren Child is the multi-talented prize-winning creator of the characters Charlie and Lola, Clarice Bean and Hubert Horatio Bobton-Trent. She has won the Smarties Gold Award, Smarties Bronze Award, Kate Greenaway Medal and been shortlisted for the Children's Book of the Year at the British Book Awards. Lauren lives in London.


PreS-Gr 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 Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
