Product description

Lola will not eat peas. In fact, she won't eat carrots, potatoes, mushrooms, eggs, sausages, cauliflower, cabbage or baked beans. And she will absolutely not ever NEVER eat a tomato. But when Charlie explains that peas are actually green drops from Greenland, and carrots are really orange twiglets from Jupiter, even Lola is tempted to clear her plate ...An innovative and fun-filled look at the problem of fussy eating, this classic, Kate Greenaway Medal-Winning picture book is guaranteed to make dinner time fun.

Me and my two kids love this book and it has given us so many laughs at bedtime. Buy I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed plus I Am Absolutely Too Small for School as they are just as much fun.

Review quote

Brilliant Sunday Telegraph So good, it's exhilarating Independent A superb book to make you laugh out loud Bookseller A fun look at the problem of fussy eating motherandbaby.co.uk A mischievous wit and cunning simplicity which, although it may have baffled some traditionalists, is still instantly embraced and understood by children Books For Keeps A paean to the early resistance years that are toddlerdom The Guardian One of my favourite books for children...The story is compelling and the pictures enchanting, but the typography is not what you would expect. The letters vary in shape and size, some lines are straight and others meander across the page. Young children love this; those who cannot yet read pick out the letters; those who can, love the variation and delight at being able to cope with it. -- Sue Walker Books For Keeps Brilliant design and a delight to share NLA Guide to Literary Resources A wonderful corrective for picky eaters The Sunday Times Your offspring will be drawn in by the off-the-wall visuals that mix line drawings and patterns with photographs, creating a world that is absolutely grounded in reality yet also wildly imaginative The Guardian A fresh and very funny picture book Bookseller A brilliantly designed book from cover, typography and illustration to endpapers and will amuse all those fussy eaters out there Literacy & Learning Brilliant design and a delight to share Guide to Literary Resources Teatime will never be the same again after this glorious book by the Smarties Prize-winning author Daily Mail Only Lauren Child could come up with an idea as successfully wacky as this -- Nicholas Tucker The Independent [Child] brings an eclecticism and freshness to her work that appeals directly to children Financial Times
