Read full description of the books:How can one possibly resist a book with such a title? I certainly could not for I will quite happily say to anyone who tries to intervene, 'THAT is MY book', in other words 'leave it alone'!
Charlie and Lola are brother and sister and Lola loves reading books. However, there is one book that she regards as really special, or in her own words, 'extra specially special'. That book is entitled 'Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies' and her Dad says that he will take her to the library to borrow a copy.
Charlie is bemused for he points out that their father took that book out for Lola the last time they visited the library, and the time before that, and the time before that ...
Lola is not concerned for she stresses that it is her favourite book and that she really needs it - NOW. She tells Charlie that it is undoubtedly the best book in the whole world. She even gives him some examples from the text (for she has borrowed it so often that she can almost recite it verbatim!)
All the way to the library Lola says, 'Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies' and emphasises that she really must get the book. She continues with this diatribe in the library, so much so that Charlie has to tell her, 'Shh! Lola, it's a library. We have to be quiet.' But Lola can't find her book and she says so and she noisily begins looking at all the books beginning with a B. 'Be quiet,' urges Charlie.
It is to no avail as Lola continues 'Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies' and stresses once more that it is her book. Charlie tries to explain that someone else has probably borrowed it but Lola's retort is, 'But they can't. It's MY book.'
Charlie tries to refer her to the hundreds and hundreds of other books on various subjects but Lola's retort is 'Too many big words, my book has pictures that I really like.' With this in mind Charlie tries to find a book with more pictures and less words for her. He finds her a book about helicopters, an encyclopaedia and an amusing pop-up book. Lola rejects them all telling him that the pop-up book is not funny whereas 'Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies' is and it makes her 'laugh and laugh and laugh'.
Charlie then tries her with other animal books with no success at which point Lola sees a girl with her book under her arm. 'I don't think she knows it is my book,' exclaims Lola as the girl departs, book under her arm.
'Try one on Cheetahs and Chimpanzees,' says Charlie. Lola concedes and replies that she will try but stresses, 'It won't be as good as 'Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies.' But when she examines it she finds the cheetahs are fast and the chimpanzees are cheeky so, suddenly she has a change of heart and says, 'You know what, Charlie, this book is probably the most best book in the whole wide world'. Suddenly 'Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies' is forgotten and she is happy with her new book!
Well, this copy is now MY book and beware anyone who tries to take it from me.
Read information about the authorLauren Child grew up in Wiltshire as the middle child of three sisters and the daughter of two teachers. She has always been interested in the many aspects of childhood, from gazing into toy shop windows to watching American children's shows from the 1960s. After attending two Art Schools, where Lauren admits that she did not learn much, she travelled for six months, still unsure about which career to embark upon.
Before Lauren starting writing and illustrating children's books she started her own company 'Chandeliers for the People' making exotic, elegant lampshades. It was only when she came to write and illustrate the book Clarice Bean, That's Me that she decided to devote her time to writing and illustrating books for children, which combines her fascination for childhood and her talent for designing and creating. Lauren gets her inspiration from other people's conversations or from seeing something funny happen.
Lauren lives in North London.
