Lola Zuckerman is always last -- ding-dong, Z-for-Zuckerman last. What this means, of course, is that Lola has to win first place in her class's "Going Green" contest. And she'll need to beat Amanda Anderson -- always first, and more importantly, her ex-best-friend! In this laugh-out-loud story with unforgettable characters -- the first in an ongoing series about Lola's travails -- Lola's out to prove that while she may be last, she is certainly not least!
This was a very cute book about a young girl who is always last, the very last - her last name starts with a Z and she is not happy about it. On top of that, her brother wins at everything and her best friend hates her.
In Lola #1, we meet Lola Zuckerman, her family and class and talk about Going Green. Lola's class is working on how best to 'go green' and Lola is determined to win. As always though, her class will present their ideas in order, alphabetical order, so Lola will be last... again.
This was a fun book, Lola is a funny little girl and her problem solving is fun to follow. The book will also have great pictures for young readers - my copy was an ARC so I only have pictures up through page 35, but they were fun and added to those beginning chapters very well.
I think young readers will enjoy this book and this series, the ideas for the going green project were instructive and they could be fun projects to do at home. Overall, I think this was a fun book.
Now would you like my copy? I have 1 paperback ARC to giveaway, only slightly worn from my shelves and one read.
