We Honestly Can Look After Your Dog (TV episode title: We Do Promise Honestly We Can Look After Your Dog)
Lola's best friend Lotta has an extremely special new coat, and Lola really wants to borrow it. Lotta isn't so sure . . . 'I will be especially very careful,' says Lola. But will she be able to keep it all fluffy and white and new? There’s not enough understanding of how sophisticated picture books can be,” said Child, who supported the project. “If we don’t understand that, then we don’t understand how amazingly sophisticated children are and that they think very deeply and powerfully about things. And we do them a disservice if we don’t see this.” Charlie has this little sister Lola. Today they are visiting London on a school trip. Lola says, "London is extremely huge and very BUSY...I can't wait!"

Her manifesto is launched the week after a six-year project from the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education found that using picture books in primary schools, and making drawing part of the learning process, improves children’s writing and reading skills. The Power of Pictures project saw over 7,000 children and 318 schools across the UK take part in a course designed to help teachers use picture books, understand the process that goes into developing picture books and foster relationships between authors and schools. The project resulted in higher reading scores, and higher writing self-efficacy and writing creativity scores for children in the programme.

Child, who is the author and illustrator of the Charlie and Lola picture books, and the Clarice Bean and Ruby Redfort series, will launch her new manifesto at an event at The Foundling Museum in London this evening. She writes in her manifesto that, as children, we recognise that our thoughts and ideas are as valid as anyone else’s, but that we are “taught to unlearn” this as adults. One might as well suggest that shorter books hold less meaning than longer ones, or large paintings are better than small. Nevertheless, the view prevails, something which leads one to wonder: what unhappy reality does its existence reveal about the way many view our children, and our child selves?”
Lauren Child is a multi-award-winning, bestselling writer and artist whose books are known and loved the world over. She is the creator of characters including Clarice Bean, Ruby Redfort and Charlie and Lola. The first book, I Will Never Not Ever Eat a Tomato (US title, later printing with Greenaway Medal seal, 2000) Charlie is Lola’s big brother, and it is a BIG job being Lola’s big brother. She doesn’t want to eat her vegetables, or go to school, or to bed. Lola is very good at coming up with reasons for why she shouldn’t have to do any of these things, Charlie is even better at coming up with fun and imaginative reasons why she should.
