A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about starting school worries, from Children's Laureate Lauren Child - now in a brilliant board book edition!

Charlie's little sister Lola is nearly big enough to go to school. But Lola is not so sure...

Lola says, "I am absolutely not BIG. I am still really quite small. I probably do not have time to go to school. I am too extremely busy doing important things at home."

This classic first-day-at-school tale addresses children's fears with warmth, humour, and a lot of fun.

As seen on CBeebies!
