A classic Charlie and Lola picture book about starting school worries, from Children's Laureate Lauren Child.

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.
