Hooray for Lolo
Niki Daly is a beloved illustrator and author from South Africa known for his exuberant illustrations and stories that speak to the heart of childhood. He's well-known in the industry to booksellers, librarians, teachers, and trade industry professionals and has won many awards for his work. These two easy readers (Here Comes Lolo and Hooray Lolo!) released simultaneously feature a young South African child in elementary school, Lolo, whose joys and conflicts are those all children experience. In Hooray for Lolo she decides to be kind to her "worst best friend," who brags all the time; loses and finds a library book, and helps an elderly man learn to read; goes to the hospital for an emergency appendectomy; and learns how to make a baby laugh when she has the chance to babysit Baby Bongi. South African Lolo will be North American children's new best friend.
