Slightly Invisible (Charlie and Lola)
by Lauren Child
Ages 3-6 40 pages Candlewick May 2011 Hardcover    

Charlie is finding it difficult to spend time with his best friend, Marv, because his younger sister, Lola, is always interrupting. She bothers them when they journey into outer space and when they search for sea monsters in the ocean.

Lola promises to stay out of their way, though, when they are mixing ingredients for a drink that will make them invisible to the most terrifying creature in the world. But when their milky pink invention disappears, Lola convinces Charlie and Marv that the best way to catch the “most strange and terrifyingly tricky creature” is to come to her tea party.

Charlie and Marv are not eager participants at first, but they become involved in her imaginative adventure when they learn how they can help Lola, her stuffed rabbit, and her invisible friend Soren Lorensen face their adversary.

First published in Great Britain in 2010, this book has colorful illustrations rendered in mixed media. Charlie and Lola are likable siblings with whom boys and girls can both connect through books and television.
