Charlie and Lola return in a perfectly funny, perfectly formed picture book that sees top negotiator Lola take on numbers in everyday life and bend them to her endearing and unique will. For the millions of Lauren Child fans, the countdown to One Thing is over!

In the words of Reuben, age 5: ‘Charlie and Lola are going to the shops with?their mummy. Lola asks for just one thing. The book takes you on a number journey. I counted everything on every page. The page with the giant clock is my favourite. My sister liked the page with the birds. I like numbers and I like this book, the pictures are very good and bright.’
