Lolo and Winkle Go Viral by L. B. Anne follows the story of two young siblings, Lolo and Winkle. Winkle’s head is always brimming with crazy ideas, and he manages to convince Lolo to work on his plans with him every single time. When the siblings receive a mobile phone from their mother, Winkle comes up with yet another scheme. Winkle leads the way as they create a YouTube channel, determined to go viral and make millions. To Lolo’s dismay, her brother becomes obsessed with filming, and very soon things begin to get out of hand. What will it take to stop Winkle?
The book description of L. B. Anne’s Lolo and Winkle Go Viral clearly indicates that the story is highly relevant and useful to young readers. The main characters are quite enjoyable, and I especially loved the bond between the children and their mother. I feel that many young readers would be able to relate to the “love-hate relationship” between the siblings. In addition, I think that the author has cleverly portrayed what an obsession with the virtual world and social media may lead to. There is a lesson in this story for all of us, children and adults alike. The story will keep young readers’ attention captivated, and I believe many young readers will want to proceed to the next book in the series. The story, being fast-paced, is also suitable for reluctant readers. I would recommend it to children aged 9-12.
