Lola is four and she 'will not ever, NEVER eat a tomato!' Sometimes she is 'not sleepy and she will not go to bed', and how will she cope when she is really 'everso ill and may never smile again'? It falls to big brother Charlie to win her round, and he uses every trick in the book — logic, humour, and the power of the imagination. Eating yucky, sticky mashed potato instantly becomes an expedition to the top of Mount Fuji tasting spoonfuls of cloud fluff. And tomatoes? They're really moonsquirters from the land of Moon! Using 2D CelAction animation, paper cutout, fabric design, real textures, photomontage and archive footage, all the distinctive style and exuberance of Lauren Child's award-winning picture books come to life. Glorious music and sound effects help to conjure up fantastical worlds that only children could invent.
