Happy Birthday Peas

Charlie and Lola Cards Founder, Amanda Bishop, like so many parents, has enjoyed reading the Charlie and Lola books to her three children. Her personal favourite is: It Wasn't Me! The appeal of Charlie and Lola as characters is largely due to the fact that Lauren Child, the celebrated author of Charlie and Lola, captures the speaking voice of a child exceptionally well. In addition, the books are beautifully (and unusually) illustrated.


The characters are quirky and both adults and children alike can relate to the themes in the books.

On the basis of favoritism alone, our parent website Really Fab Cards wanted to include the cards in the ranges that they sell, but they are also of course a great commercial success given the huge popularity of the Charlie and Lola characters. So much so in fact, that we have devoted this site solely to the Charlie and Lola card range.

So, as a special treat for your cards (and this is very useful if they are a present) when you spend just £25 on cards, your cards will be sent in a beautiful, rigid, gift box.

About Charlie and Lola

Charlie and Lola are the principal characters from a series of children's picture books by Lauren Child. The stories are all narrated by seven year-old Charlie, and focus on the antics of his feisty four year-old sister, Lola. The books as well as the television series also emphasize the relationship between closely-aged siblings.

The first "Charlie and Lola" book, I Will Not Ever Never Eat A Tomato, published in 2001, won the prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. The character of Lola was based upon an inquisitive little girl whom Child encountered on a train in Denmark.
