This utterly delightful debut picture book tells the relatable tale of Lola Dutch, who just is TOO MUCH! As in goes overboard with enthusiasm, goes beyond the boundaries of sense, as in borders on catastrophes along with her 4 funny sidekick friends – Pig, Crane, Gator and Bear. The expressive watercolors and delicate pencil art are literally bursting with joy and energy from the page, as is Lola Dutch herself. It is a book you could hand to a grandparent with a knowing, sly smile………”I think you may know someone like this”. Can’t wait for more Lola Dutch adventures from husband and wife team of Kenneth and Sarah Jane Wright. Bonus appeal: Endpapers that turn into play scenes using the included paper doll cutouts of Lola Dutch and Bear! - Maureen
