When Lola, a small, orange, armadillo, trips and falls, spilling juice all over a pristine white chair, she comes to the logical conclusion that there is no other solution but to run away to the library. Along the way she picks up a posse of other animals who have made tragic mistakes including a bear who broke a swingset and a lamb that snipped a garden hose in two. Emotions running high, the animals continue to make a bigger and bigger mess as they run towards the library, until a little red bird helps them see the way forward. In this catastrophically funny picture book, Tsurumi explores the the world-ending, sky-falling, heart-crushing feelings that can often accompany simple accidents and how we can recover from them. 
— From Kinsey's Picks


When a clumsy armadillo named Lola knocks over a glass pitcher, she sets off a silly chain of events, encountering chaos wherever she goes. But accidents happen--just ask the stoat snarled in spaghetti, the airborne sheep, and the bull who has broken a whole shop's worth of china. In the tradition of beloved books like The Dot and Beautiful Oops, this charming, hilarious debut from author-illustrator Andrea Tsurumi shows that mistakes don't have to be the end of the world.
