Lola and Charlie find themselves in the middle of a heat wave. The only thing that will cool them down is a big ice cream. When Lola offers to give Eddie a lick of her ice cream in exchange for a taste of his, Eddie accidentally knocks off her ice cream to the ground. Then to make matters worse, he won't share his. For this Lola, can not forgive him. We think that embarassement and pride keep Eddie from making the apology.

Charlie and Lola find all kinds of ways to cool off but nothing works exactly. Then they see Eddie putting up his swimming pool and Charlie suggests she asks to swim in it. But Lola still thinks he's an old meanie! When Eddie asks if she'd like to swim, Lola has to decide if being angry is that important. In the pool Eddie finally finds the courage to say he was sorry.

Nice little twisty ending in the last paragraph. As always Charlie and Lola leave me smiling.

My son loves the Charlie and Lola books he had gotten from the library and when I saw these on Amazon for such reasonable prices, I had to grab a few. They are cute, cleverly written, and always address a subject my son can relate to. The author does a really good job.

This is an adorable book about a brother and sister who are best friends. For a family with siblings it is a must read.
I highly recommend the Dvd that goes with it. And of course I love Amazon's Prime shipping that gets it to me in two days.

My 5yr old girl says, she loves this book and encouraged me to give it 5 stars. She says it's the best book in the whole wide world!

My daughter is named Lola so we own the few Lola books there are out there and this is the collection with the most options. When we were first given these books I thought they were just plain odd and put them aside (my daughter wasn't even 1 year then so we were more focus on touch feely books and Sandra Boynton). We later came across them and began reading them (around age 2) and she really enjoyed hearing about the character with her name. We have never seen the UK cartoon, so we are at a loss there, but although I still find them odd (especially some of the language/wording), I enjoy reading them as does my daughter. My personal favorite of the 4 we have is the one where Lola dresses up as an Alligator.
