Absolutely One Thing
Featuring Charlie and Lola

author/illustrator: Lauren Child

series name:
Charlie and Lola

Charlie and Lola are going to the store, and their mother says they may choose one thing. “One thing to share?” Lola asks. No, one thing each, explains Charlie, or two actual things between two. Lola is nine minutes late getting ready, and on the way, there are ladybugs to count and maybe a squillion leaves on a tree. With Lola hilariously bending everyday numbers to her will and Charlie providing the (somewhat exasperated) voice of reason, fans new and old will be hard-put to resist these utterly appealing siblings.

“Sunny and energetic. . . . Plenty of math is squeezed into the text, but the joy of numbers is conveyed much more effectively.” — School Library Journal
