THIS IS LOLA. Lola Dutch.
She can never have too much fun!

(pg. 1, US Hardcover Edition)

LOLA DUTCH by Kenneth and Sarah Jane Wright is super cute and fun. Anyone who loves Fancy Nancy, Eloise, or Olivia is going to embrace Lola Dutch with open arms.

Lola Dutch has a crazy active imagination and she is ALWAYS doing something. She actually reminds me a lot of my four-year-old niece. Full of energy, always ready to try something new, forever inventing new things, and never wanting to go to bed at night because there's just so much more to do--even when she's exhausted!

I think a lot of little kids are like that, and Lola Dutch's adventures will resonate with adults and children alike!

I also really like the way harder words are highlighted in capital letters throughout the novel. The Wrights don't dumb things down for kids or use simpler words. Much like the Fancy Nancy series, they sprinkle harder language throughout--and even some French!

Even cooler? One of the book flaps has CUT OUT PAPER DOLLS and the endpapers create a background to play on. How cute and inspired is that? I don't think I've seen a book before that turns into a play area in quite that fashion. What an innovative addition that adds to the fun for hours!
