But not Charlotte's Web? Trying to find a book about a Charlotte for a first birthday gift. Doesn't necessarily have to be suitable for a baby, if she'll grow into it & it's a good one! Thanks so much for any suggestions.

Charlotte sometimes?

There is a Jaquline Wilson book called 'The Lottie Project' about a girl called Charlie (short for Charlotte) who writes a fictional diary about a victorian servant called Lottie.

If it's something to 'grow into' would anything by Charlotte Bronte be worth a look?

Charlotte Sometimes is good.

Charlotte Sometimes is indeed great, although a grower-into.

Oh, Charlotte Sometimes looks great - can't believe I haven't read it. Might have to get 2 copies!
Thanks everyone.

This David McKee book is utterly bonkers and odd. But wonderful mad pictures with lots to talk about with older children (3 upwards).

Brave Charlotte - a sheep. And if you look at the other books below, there are a few more with Charlotte in the name. smile

Meant to say, Charlotte Sometimes is an excellent book too. smile

Oh thank you - I like the look of Brave Charlotte. The Charlotte I am buying for comes from a very outdoorsy family so a mountain-climbing sheep will be just perfect. Off to buy it now (and Charlotte Sometimes for me smile)

Thank you everyone. I try to avoid the children's book threads as I have a serious addiction that does not need fuelled but this is so wonderful, I'll be back to lurk!
