Based on books by Lauren Child about everyday occurrences in the lives of a boy called Charlie and his little sister Lola. Child's inspiration for Lola was a little girl she saw on a train in Denmark and she explains, “I was traveling with my Danish boyfriend through Denmark on a train and there was a child who kept asking her mum and dad all these questions all the time. She was an incredibly sweet-looking child and she looked very like Lola; she was just such a character and there was something about her, the way she was dressed and everything, and so I drew a picture of her and then I thought of a story that would work with that kind of character.” Uniquely, the series is voiced by children and evokes charming child-like language. It is also characterized by distinctive and imaginative production techniques, using two-dimensional ‘cut-out' style animation combined with archive film footage and photographs. This is the second DVD release from BBC, and contains six more episodes from the first series. It also includes specially animated menus featuring Charlie and Lola, a hide and seek game, two compilations of charming scenes and two funny outtakes. As seen on ABC TV.
