About the Book


In Lola’s fourth unpredictable adventure, her best friends are traveling to exotic places for Thanksgiving and she’s stuck at home. Lola offers to take care of their dogs—without asking Mom and Dad’s permission! And Lola’s afraid her grandmothers are going to discover that she’s lied about whose pumpkin pie is best, every year. As if that weren’t enough, there’s a knot in her curly hair that feels the size of Texas. Maybe she should just move there . . . or maybe her troubles are better untangled than not. “Cheeky Lola is a well-balanced combination of exuberance and naïve vulnerability that charms and entertains.” —Kirkus Reviews
