Lola is going to the optician. She has decided that she absolutely MUST have glasses. Charlie says, “You'll only get glasses if you really, really need them.” But Lola says, “I really DO need them, Charlie.”

Children's Literature

Lola is certain that she does not need to go in for an eye test, which she snippily explains to Charlie, her older brother. However, at school, Lola sees that Mini has a pair of colorful, flowery glasses to help her see clearly. Back at home, she tries to convince Charlie that she now needs glasses. Lola's anticipated day at the eye doctor arrives and Lola gets her eyes checked. Her eyes are fine. However, she is deflated because she does not need glasses which she had been waiting to select and wear. Charlie comes up with a plan that appeals and satisfies Lola. Enjoy the antics of Lola as Charlie tells the story. The illustrations are appealing. Charlie and Lola are portrayed as comical, cartoon-ish characters and placed in textured collages which make up the background. Charlie and Lola are characters created by Lauren Child. There are other stories in the "Charlie and Lola" series both televised and in print. Reviewer: Carrie Hane Hung
