In her fourth hilarious adventure, good-hearted Lola can't help getting into trouble. Her friends are all traveling for the Thanksgiving holidays, so she offers to dog-sit—but fails to mention this to Mom, who is desperately trying to finish a batch of Lola dresses for a new client. Now Lola is juggling her dog-sitting responsibilities with her worries. Will her parents discover the growing knot in her hair and cause her excruciating pain brushing it out? Will her grandmothers discover that she's lied to them every year about who makes the best pumpkin pie? Will Jack get so involved in his new babysitting and yard-work jobs that, like Mom and Dad, he won't have time for her anymore? Lola's worries, like the knot in her hair, grow greater until she finally has to stop hiding them and start untangling them.

Editorial Reviews

Hilarious Lola has a lot of problems, but the very biggest one—growing all the time—is the immense knot of snarled hair at the back of her head. What is a girl to do?... Lola's distinct, effervescent first-person narration includes the occasional definition—'Deluxe means you wish you had one'—and other funny thoughts that early grade school readers (and grown-ups) will laugh at. Hoppe's numerous charming illustrations enrich the presentation. Cheeky Lola is a well-balanced combination of exuberance and naïve vulnerability that charms and entertains.' —Kirkus Reviews
