I Am Not Sleepy and I Will Not Go to Bed (Charlie and Lola) by Lauren Child

The Charlie and Lola series centres on the dynamics of the mischievous, imaginative younger sister Lola and her older, more sensible brother, Charlie. Written in a he-says-she-says style, the books may not be engaging enough for the younger audience, although the whimsical scenarios and funny dialogue will appeal to older children.


This particular book was quite amusing, with Lola coming up with fanciful excuses to delay her bedtime and Charlie patiently entertaining her stories and nudging her along to bed.

You can watched the animated C&L episode based on the book here:
