about this item

Little Lola, the heroine from I WILL NEVER NOT EVER EAT A TOMATO, maintains that she is too little to go to school despite her parents' admonishments to the contrary. Her kindly brother Charlie, who narrates this story, finds Lola a hard sell. When he notes that she can send cards to her friends if she can write, she counters that she prefers to talk on the phone. She insists that knowing how to count to a hundred in unnecessary, since she can already count to ten, which is high enough. It's only when Charlie tells her that her imaginary friend is going off to school and will be lonesome without her that she relents. Imaginative collages of cartoon drawings, photographs, and colorful cloth illustrate the story.
When Lola is worried about starting school, her older brother Charlie reassures her.
