Lola is very excited to have a sleepover at best friend Lotta's house, but will she be so excited once she realizes how different everything will be getting ready for bed somewhere else?

I think this is actually one of the first ones we found at the library but it's still a favorite. Kids can relate to this story in a lot of different ways, and even though I think the ending is kind of abrupt it's still a good one.

Well, while I love Charlie and Lola, this particular story lacked the luster and brilliance of the others. This story about Lola's sleepover is a bit repetitious and not as fun because Charlie is hardly in it.

A great little book to ease young ones minds when they are going on their first sleepover. Actually is a great little book to read at a first sleepover.

Written and illustrated by Lauren Child. Published by Grosset & Dunlap.

I was disappointed by this one. The story is a bit flat and uneven, and the illustrations could have been SO much better. There's a lot of repetition. Maybe a bedtime book?

A good book about what a sleepover is like - how everything is a bit strange. Lola is lucky to have a friend like Lotta willing to accommodate her requests.
