DVD Movie Review: Charlie & Lola - Volume 1
Charlie has this little sister Lola. She is small and very funny. Sometimes mom and dad ask Charlie to help Lola. This is a hard job because Lola often has ideas of her own. Lola will Never eat a tomato! She is also not sleepy and will not go to bed. And how will she cope when she is not well and may never smile again? Using his imagination and clever thinking, Charlie encourages Lola to see the world in a more reasoned way, having lots of fun in the process!
Using 2D cel animation, paper cutout, fabric design, photomontage and archive footage, all the distinctive style and exuberance of Lauren Child's award-winning picture books come to life. Glorious music and sound effects help to conjure up fantastical worlds that only a child could invent, while realistic dialogue, voiced by children, ensures these magical adventures really resonate with kids.

Critic Quotes and Reviews:
Our Review: Real children (with British pronunciations) give voices to the characters of Lauren Child's award-winning picture books. The collage-style animation is not only original but also fantastic. The theme couldn't be better: Charlie is a big brother that is the perfect role model and with his unending patience helps his little sister Lola. He explains everything in funny and imaginative ways and they both have fun while he tries to make her see things a little more realistic and overcame her fears. Both kids and parents will be delighted with Charlie and Lola. A.D.
