      A lovely classic C&L book, with nice story and pictures (based on a TV episode)

      I bought this book as part of a set, and all of my 3 kids enjoy it immensely! The story features Charlie and Lola, and is very much a typical Charlie and Lola book in many respects. The illustrations are the usual good quality, inspiring and colourful ones, and the story is good. In the book, Charlie and Lola play a series of games, and while Lola really wants to win EVERY time, Charlie tries to persuade her that she doesn't have to always be the winner. Thus it as the usual C&L "message" for life - you don't always have to win.

      One thing to note about this book is that, if I were being picky, you can tell it is one of the ones based on a TV episode, rather than the ones that were written as a picture book first and then possibly adapted for TV at a later date. Don't get me wrong, the story is up the usual standard and really engages my kids (the youngest loves copying the "I've WON" lines etc.). It's just that on one occasion at least, the book describes Lola doing something, which in the TV episode was a visual piece of action, but in the book is less creatively portrayed. (The bit I am thinking of is where they are playing snakes and ladders and Lola charms the snake to take her to the finish - in the book this is described, but I could vividly remember her actually charming the snake in the TV episode and it's a shame that this didn't really translate into the book.

      Overall, this book has a lovely story, great pictures and is very engaging for children (probably between 2-4 years are the most suited), and it is one of our favourites, but if pushed I would say that we prefer the ones that originated as a book rather than a TV episode.
