Sizzles Is Completely Not Here


G came home with a new board book for our little Ella the other night: Sizzles Is Completely Not Here. It looks as Ella loves it as much as I do. I am completely smitten by the illustration style and all the little pop-ups. (My favorite is the caterpillar hidden in a little sandwich) I think we’ll end up with the entire Charlie and Lola Series sooner or later.

  1. I even didn’t know they had books. I watch the TV show all the time with my nieces and find that it’s about the only kid’s show that I actually look forward to -as opposed to merely (barely) tolerating. Great illustrations, great characters with real, defined and engaging personalities (especially Lola) and story lines that don’t talk down or pander to either kids or adults.
    They’ve both got birthdays coming up so I guess I’ll have to check out the whole line of merchandise. Thanks for the tip!

  2. I used to have a music teacher in high school… He was so jovial… he would whistle and sing… I was convinced that he had the ability to see an alternate cartoon reality through his “magic” glasses (Think Disney’s Song of the South).

    Then I met my daughter, and, by proxy, Lola…. and I realized you don’t need magic glasses to see the excitement in life… just an open imagination… and a pinch of crazy.

  3. I adore Charlie and Lola. My 3-year-old’s not a fan, so I watch them on my own. Check out the Clarice Bean books by the same author. Very cute and funny.
