Little Lola the shrew is a troublemaker, and a mean one at that! Her constant whining has shredded her family’s nerves. Her siblings are fed up, and her parents have just plain given up. She always gets her way. But the real trouble begins when Lola’s cousin Lester comes to stay with her family. Turns out, he’s meaner than she is! Suddenly Lester is the one getting special treatment, just because he demands it. Lola and Lester find themselves in screaming matches over the silliest things. Will Lola ever learn her lesson? Will Lester learn his?

This wonderful book has a valuable message that isn’t preachy, delivered with warmth and charm.
