Junior Fiction

'The clubs epidemic breaks out in March like a giant nit plague. It spreads through our class 'til practically everyone's infected. Not me. I must be inoculated.' Lolly has a divine teacher called Ms Love. She has a cat called Laughing Stock but he won't qualify her for membership of the Kitten Club. The Harry Potter Club excludes girls, the Lego Club's too violent and she's disdainful of the Barbie Club beauty contests. Will Lolly find a Club to truly belong to? Clubs is the first in a series of books featuring heroine Lolly Leopold. Hugely successful in New Zealand where it was first published, it won the accolades of 'Book of the Year' and 'Picture Book of the Year' in the 2005 New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults.
