It's bedtime for Charlie and Lola, the hilarious siblings from I WILL NEVER NOT EVER EAT A TOMATO.

Night owl Lola likes to stay up coloring and scribbling and wriggling and bouncing and chattering. Lola never gets tired. How can big brother Charlie convince her it's time for bed? Heralded by the WASHINGTON POST as "a delightful new voice in children's books," author-illustrator Lauren Child splashes her offbeat sense of humor and unique artwork all over this bedtime story. Laugh out loud at Lola's imaginative antics, but save a cheer for kind, patient Charlie, the big brother we'd all love to have.

Review: I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed (Charlie & Lola)

User Review  - Sara - Goodreads

I picked this book thinking the illustrations would be different and fun, but I really didn't like them. There was a lot going on with the illustrations and the font that I didn't really care for. The storyline is cute though. Read full review

Review: I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed (Charlie & Lola)

User Review  - Addyson Barr - Goodreads

I thought this was a cute book that little girls would love. The pictures were a jumble of pictures, crayons, and ink which little kids would like. I also found this relatable to my experience before I used to go to bed and not want to. Read full review
