Slightly Invisible, Hardback Book
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Charlie and friend Marv are in search of strange and tricky creatures. And they would like to search without Lola bothering and interrupting.

But Lola knows EXACTLY how to catch strange and tricky creatures, and enlists a little bit of help from her invisible friend, Soren Lorensen, and, of course, one or three drops of pink milk. "Child is as visually inventive and verbally dexterous as ever ...classic." - Guardian "The Child recipe at its fresh, playful best." - Observer "A typically exuberant, imaginative whirl of a story." - Angels and Urchins "Child is second to none when it comes to capturing the imagination of young children." - Daily Express "A witty book that reminds us why we fell in love with Charlie and Lola in the first place." - Junior

Review by

Grades PS - 2 <br/><br/>Charlie and Lola fans will love the newest story in the series. Ever-patient Charlie wants nothing more than to have some time alone with his friend Marv as they explore jungles and oceans and space in search of strange and tricky creatures. Lola, though, insists she will not get in the way, so they let her sit close by as they invent their invisibility potion that will aid them in their quest. They are quite taken aback when they return to get the potion and discover that Lola's (already invisible) friend Soren Lorensen has apparently drunk most of it-- as well as eating all the cookies (he IS quite greedy). But never fear... Lola and Soren provide their assistance as Charlie and Marv continue their search for strange and tricky creatures. Of course, after they have caught the most strange and tricky creature of all, Lola must gently ask the boys to stop bothering and interrupting, as she and Soren would like some time to themselves. Lauren Child is in top form. <br/>
