School Library Journal - 03/01/2018 PreS-Gr 2—Lola Dutch is a creative and imaginative girl filled with grand ideas. When Lola and her friends, Pig, Crane, Gator, and Bear need breakfast, Lola doesn't settle for plain toast. She prepares a feast of grits, pastries, and crepes. When Lola and her friends get creative one afternoon, they don't just paint pictures of houses and rainbows. Instead, they create their own masterpieces using inspiration from artists like Monet, Picasso, and van Gogh. Through it all, Bear is always the voice of reason reminding Lola she is just a "little bit much." The predictable text structures and patterns of this story makes the text flow well for young readers. The pencil-and-watercolor illustrations add an additional whimsical effect to an already imaginative story. VERDICT Young readers will love this innovative protagonist and her fanciful ideas.—Jennifer Bludau, La Grange Independent School District, TX - Copyright 2018 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
