Read full description of the books:
I actually really enjoy this series of books and I will not never ever not read a Charlie and Lola book again. With apologies for my Lola-speak beginning but this couple really really do grow on you. And in this adventure it is Charlie's birthday and he is having a party ... but Lola, as always, wants to interfere.
Lola begins by opening Charlie's cards and when he complains Lola tells him that their Mum had said that she should make sure that Charlie has an extremely lovely happy birthday and that is why she helped open the cards.
Lola then tells Charlie that there will be lots of presents, lots of party games like musical statues and that she can't wait for the party. But Charlie tells her that his party will not be like that ... Lola doesn't really want to hear that as she has her own set ideas.
When Charlie goes with his Dad to get scary masks for it is to be a monster party, Lola starts making fairy cakes with pink icing, something that Charlie does not want. However, guests arrive suitably attired and Charlie tells them that there will be monster drinks and monster games like monster tag and monster chase. Lola still envisages musical statues!
Lola opens some of Charlie's presents and when he complains she says, 'OK, Charlie, I'm just helping.' She then blows out his candles and when Charlie looks miffed she asks, 'What's wrong, Charlie?' So he itemises what is wrong and what Lola has done. Then he stresses, 'This is my party, not your party!' Lola's response is, 'I just like parties.'
To make Charlie feel a little better, while he is out playing monster games, she makes everyone a monster party bag, gives them to the guests as they come back in and says, 'Thank you for coming to Charlie's party.' But before they leave the guests spot the pink-iced fairy cakes and eat them all. Charlie's friend Marv even says, 'Thank you, Lola. Pink icing is really tasty.'
So after the guests have left Charlie and Lola are friends again as Lola tells him, 'That was a REALLY good party, wasn't it?' Charlie agrees and Lola has the last word with 'They REALLY liked my pink fairy cakes!'
Lauren Child has once again provided us with a sparkling and amusing adventure of this quirky duo.

Read information about the authorLauren Child grew up in Wiltshire as the middle child of three sisters and the daughter of two teachers. She has always been interested in the many aspects of childhood, from gazing into toy shop windows to watching American children's shows from the 1960s. After attending two Art Schools, where Lauren admits that she did not learn much, she travelled for six months, still unsure about which career to embark upon.
Before Lauren starting writing and illustrating children's books she started her own company 'Chandeliers for the People' making exotic, elegant lampshades. It was only when she came to write and illustrate the book Clarice Bean, That's Me that she decided to devote her time to writing and illustrating books for children, which combines her fascination for childhood and her talent for designing and creating. Lauren gets her inspiration from other people's conversations or from seeing something funny happen.
Lauren lives in North London.
