Read full description of the books:
Lola always wanted to be with her brother Charlie but occasionally the latter wanted to be with his best friend Marv when they often spent their time looking for strange and tricky creatures. Lola did not think that was fun!
One time Charlie and Marv were floating in outer space looking for Martians when Lola stepped on their space ship and they had to walk back to earth. Another time they had discovered an amazing sea monster at the bottom of the ocean but Lola arrived to take it away in her cart and very recently they had discovered 'the most strange and terrifying tricky creature in the universe when Lola arrived with her rabbit who made a squeaking noise and the creature ran away.
So, having experienced all Lola's interfering Charlie told her that he did not want her bothering them and he was going to play with Marv on his own. He told her, 'You see we are inventing a very inventive invention.' They told her it was top secret so she asked why and they explained that it was a potion for helping them to catch strange and tricky creatures; they added that it would make her and themselves invisible. Lola was not impressed and asked them if they would like to have a tea party instead. An emphatic 'No' was the answer.
They made their potion, using pink milk, sailed twice round the world, seeing some extremely strange creatures, and then decided to have a snack for sailing around the world had made them very peckish!
But once in the kitchen they saw a strange and tricky creature that was looking very hungry so they went to the fridge to get the invisible potion but found it had gone. They shouted Lola to see what she had done with it but they could not see her. Then they heard her talking away but still could not see her. Asked who she was talking to she said that it was her invisible friend Soren Lorensen and then she admitted having drunk a little of the invisible potion.
Fortunately they then saw her but they could not see Soren and Lola explained that they could only see her because they knew what she looked like and they could not see Soren for they did not know him. Then Charlie asked who had eaten all the biscuits and Lola had to admit that it was Soren for, as she said, He is quite greedy.'
Charlie and Marv then told Lola that they would never catch strange and tricky creatures because there was no potion left and they were unable to sneak up on them but Lola said that Soren would do that. They soon got into the middle of a deep, dark forest where such creatures lived. Lola explained that Soren had told them to be extremely quiet but Charlie challenged that because he had not heard Soren speak. Lola explained that Soren's voice was invisible too! Charlie doubted this.
Then the most strange and terrifying tricky creature in the universe appeared and was about to gobble the three of them up when Lola said, 'Show him the rabbit.' They did show the rabbit and the creature was himself terrified and he was caught - Lola was justified, Soren had proved her point, she could find and capture strange creatures.
The creature then joined them for a tea party and although Charlie and Marv wanted pink milk, Lola would not let them have any for she said it was for Soren as 'Catching strange and tricky creatures makes him quite thirsty.' And then Lola said that Soren wanted to drink his milk with just her so she made the others invisible and was quite content alone with Soren!
Another fun, and more quirky, episode in the lives of Charlie and Lola.
