i first stubbled upon charlie and lola a couple of years ago, (channel surfing while eating my cereal), and i've loved them ever since. lauren child created this famous duo which started out as a book series, evolved into tv episodes, and now is a whole enterprise of products. this adorable brother and sister pair find adventure in everyday living, as they overcome obstacles we've all encountered. the artistic style is refreshing and child-like, and the vocabulary realist and charming. what else can i say, my little niece isobel loves them just as much as me. good job lauren!
