Charlie and Lola
I Am Not Sleepy And I Will Not Go To Bed
Will Lola ever be sleepy enough to go to bed, Charlie
wonders? She drinks pink milk with tigers, cleans her
teeth with a lion, shoos whales down the plughole and
has a pyjama party with some dancing dogs. When,
at last, Charlie manages to get his little sister to feel
sleepy, there's a surprise waiting for him in his bed.
We Do Promise Honestly We Can Look After Your Dog
Lola and her friend Lotta know everything there is to
know about dogs. So they're really pleased when Marv
lets them look after his dog Sizzles in the park. They
stroke him, they pat him, they groom him. It's all going
well until Sizzles disappears. And when they find him
– there isn't just one Sizzles but two! How will they tell
I Am Hurrying I'm Almost Nearly Ready
Charlie wants Lola to hurry or they'll be late for school.
But there are so many exciting things to do on the way
that Lola keeps getting distracted. There's colouring,
and dancing with clouds, playing hopscotch on musical
pavements and giggling with hysterical hedgehogs.
Charlie has to come up with a cunning ruse to get his
little sister to hurry up… You wouldn't want to miss
Dragon Day at school, would you?
There Is Only One Sun And That Is Me
It's the school play and Lola is determined to be The
Sun. She knows the part will be hers because yellow
is her favourite colour. She was born to play the sun!
Imagine her disappointment when she finds out that
she's a leaf. And not only that, she's a boring brown
autumn leaf. But with Charlie's help, Lola discovers how
leaves are far from boring. And when the big day arrives,
Lola is the best leaf in the whole wide forest.
I Will Not Ever Never Eat A Tomato
Lola is a very fussy eater; she won't eat mushrooms, or
peas or fishfingers and she will never ever eat a tomato!
Charlie helps her to discover that peas are really green
drops from Green Land and mashed potato is cloud fluff
from the pointiest peak of Mount Fuji. But will she eat
that tiny weeny tomato? Never! But she might just
eat a moonsquirter.
But That Is My Book
You have to be quiet when you're in a library. But that's
very hard for Lola when she can't find her absolutely
most favourite book - "Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies."
Charlie introduces her to books about dinosaurs and
books about Romans and he even talks her into a
beautiful Chinese pop-up book. But nothing matches
"Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies." Or does it?
I'm Really Ever Not So Well
Charlie has promised Marv that he'll play football with
him but poor Lola has a very nasty cold and is stuck in
bed. She begs Charlie to stay with her. Charlie tries all
sorts of ways of making her feel better and a butterfly
chase, Flutterby Mountain, finally does the trick. Will
Charlie ever make it to his football match?
I Like My Hair Completely The Way It Is
It's that time when Charlie and Lola have to get their
hair cut. But something's bothering Lola and she doesn't
want to tell us what it is. She just wants to keep her
hair completely the way it is. Lola wants her hair long
so that she can sit on it and look like a princess. Then
Charlie wonders if she's scared. Absolutely not! She's
not scared of the snippy scissors, of hairdressers…
of anything! But don't let that hairbrush get near her
I Can Do Anything That's Everything All On My Own
Today Lola wants to do everything that's anything all
on her own. In the park, Charlie and his friend Marv
persuade her that a see-saw won't "see" or "saw" with
only one person. When the boys get on the other
end up goes Lola, high in the sky, where she sees things
she could only dream of. And, what's more, she saves
Marv and Charlie from the ever-so-evil pirates. All on
Boo! Made You Jump!
It's ever so easy for Charlie to make Lola jump. But
what Lola wants more than anything is to make Charlie
jump. This proves quite tricky. Lola tries everything.
She asks her best friend Lotta and Marv to help her
make Charlie jump. They try hiding, ghosts and really,
really scary stories. Soon Charlie, too, is longing to
jump. Will nothing work?
The Most Wonderfullest Picnic In The Whole Wide World
You can't have a picnic without swirly tennis and boildy
eggs and of course sunshine. Lola, Lotta, Charlie and
Marv are really excited because they have all of those
things. But just as the fun is about to begin, the storm
clouds gather. Luckily, Charlie knows how the desert
people have picnics indoors and a potential disaster
turns into the most wonderfullest picnic ever.
It Wasn't Me!
Charlie wins first prize at school for his fantastic homemade rocket, which he made from ten yoghurt pots and
some extra wide tin foil. As he puts his rocket safely
away on the top shelf, he explains to Lola that the rocket
really isn't a toy and she must absolutely promise not
to touch it or play with it. Then Lola and her imaginary
friend, Soren Lorenson, find that they have to transport
an elephant back to the jungle; Soren persuades Lola
that the rocket is a really good idea. But it isn't.
It's A Secret
Lola has to keep Charlie's birthday surprise a big secret.
And it's really, really hard to keep secrets. To stop Lola
from telling him, Charlie decides to try to "guess" the
surprise by coming up with the most extraordinary
suggestions. Through this, he discovers it is old and big
and scary. But nothing could ever have prepared Charlie
for the best birthday surprise ever.
I Love Going To Granny And Grandpa's … It's Just That…
Granny and Grandpa's house is by the sea where there
are pony rides and lovely things to eat, a big dressing
up box and Caspar the Cat. But Lola is worried that
Soren Lorenson, her imaginary friend, might miss her
while she's away. Charlie solves that problem. Then she
says she can't go away because Mum and Dad might miss
her. Charlie comes up with another solution. But Lola
still doesn't want to go to Granny and Grandpa's… why?
Ohhh, it's because she might miss Mum and Dad. Can
Charlie put her little troubled mind at rest?
I Do Not Ever Never Want My Wobbly Tooth To Fall Out
Lola is horrified because she has her first ever wobbly
tooth and she does not ever, never want her wobbly
tooth to fall out. She doesn't want a big gap in her
teeth even if Charlie does say that she'll grow another
one which is stronger and better. No, Lola's tooth
is absolutely not going to fall out… not until she
discovers there's a Tooth Fairy! Who brings PRESENTS!
Suddenly she can't get that tooth out fast enough.
To please Mum, Lola is determined to stay clean and
tidy for her very first school photograph. And Lola's not
very good at staying clean and tidy. What makes it even
harder to achieve is that there's a water-tray, school
lunch and painting class before the school photograph
happens. But, as ever, Charlie and Lola find a way of
producing a really absolutely very special photo of Lola
I'm Just Not Keen On Spiders
Lola likes all sorts of creepy crawlies, she's just not
keen on spiders. Charlie tries to show Lola that spiders
aren't bad at all, in fact they're really quite clever. He
shows her that spiders can walk upside down, and build
fantastic webs that are bouncy like trampolines. Soon
Lola gets very attached to a little spider they've found
in the house and, before we know it, she's given him a
name, made him his own house, found him a friend and
is throwing a spider tea party.
You Won't Like This Present As Much As I Do
It's Lotta's birthday and of course Lola wants to buy her
friend the very best present in the whole wide world.
She is over the moon when she finds the very thing… a
doctor's kit! But it's really hard to give your best friend
the best present ever when you really, really like the
I Must Take Completely Everything
Lola is packing to go to Lotta's for the night. And she
is packing everything because her and Lotta are going
to play Cinderella! This means that Charlie and Marv
can have the whole bedroom to themselves to set up
an enormous race track of their own. Disaster strikes
when Lola realises she has left her suitcase at home and
Charlie and Marv find they are missing a really important
piece of track. Imagination comes to the rescue in the
form of a teaspoon and an intergalactic space race. But
where exactly did that missing bit of track go?
I Want To Play Music Too!
Introducing Charlie on clarinet and Marv on keyboards!
The boys are presenting a piece all about Outer Space,
accompanied with music in front of the whole school
tomorrow in assembly. Lola is desperate to join in. But
it takes a lot of time and hard work to learn how to
play an instrument. Lola is not deterred. Improvising
instruments is much more fun and, what's more, Lola's
makeshift band turns out to be just what's needed.
I'm Far Too Extremely Busy
Lola simply doesn't have time to play today; she's
far too extremely busy organising her office full of
mermaids and running her own café, dentist and library.
She's far too busy to play with Charlie, or Lotta, or even
her imaginary friend Soren Lorensen. So she couldn't
possibly find the time to play Charlie's new card game
– Flip Flop. However, when Marv comes round to play
cards, Lola isn't sure that being extremely busy all the
time is quite such a good idea.
I Want To Be Much More Bigger Like You
Life's just not fair when you're always the smaller one…
you can't go to bed late, you can't get your own pink
milk and you can't go on the Super Dooper Loop the
Looper ride at the fair. Lola does everything she can
to make herself taller - imagining she's a sunflower, a
skyscraper and even the tallest mountain in the world.
Charlie tries to point out all the advantages of being
small… and they even swap places. But Lola remains
unconvinced. Only the sight and noise of the really
scary Loop the Looper makes her change her mind.
My Little Town
Sharing the "My Little Town" play set that Granny
and Grandpa gave them proves a bit of a challenge for
Charlie and Lola. Lola wants big flowers and trees and
butterflies and a zoo house. While Charlie wants an
airport with a control tower and a huge runway. Before
long, Charlie gets quite carried away, hogs the whole
game and is intent on saving his little world. Lola is
understandably very upset. Can she forgive Charlie and
help him out with the Martian invasion?
But I Am An Alligator
Dressing up is one of Lola's absolutely favourite things
to do and now she's got this fabulous new alligator
costume, she's not ever going to take it off… not ever! Snap! Snap! Snap! And to Charlie's embarrassment
Lola wears her alligator costume everywhere… the
supermarket, the park and she even plans to wear it for
her school talk called "All about Me!". Oh no! What is
Charlie going to do to stop her making a fool of herself?
I've Won, No I've Won, No I've Won
Lola simply has to win all of the time. She can run
faster than a cheetah, she can bounce higher than a
kangaroo and she can stand on one leg for longer than
a flamingo. She beats Charlie at snakes and ladders by
climbing up a slippery snake. Could this be cheating?
But when Charlie wins the race round the park, a tired
little Lola points out that you don't have to win all the
time… or maybe you do.
Snow Is My Favourite And Is My Best
Snow is on the way and Lola is bursting with
excitement. Lola just loves snow. After she finally
gets to sleep, she wakes up the next morning to find
that everything has gone completely, extremely white!
Charlie, Lola, Marv, Sizzles and Lotta have a wonderful
time in the park. They make snow angels and have snow
races and Lotta and Lola even make a snow dog. Snow
really is the best thing ever!...until it melts. Charlie
helps a very disappointed Lola see that snow is even
more special because it isn't there all of the time.
