9780552569934: The Butterfly Club

The exciting new story from one of the UK's best-loved authors.
     Tina is a triplet, but she's always been the odd one out. Her sisters Phil and Maddie are bigger and stronger and better at just about everything. Luckily, they look after teeny-tiny Tina wherever they go -- but when the girls start in scary, super-strict Miss Lovejoy's class, they're split up, and Tina has to fend for herself for the first time.
     Tina is horrified when she's paired up with angry bully Selma, who nobody wants to be friends with. But when Miss Lovejoy asks them to help her create a butterfly garden in the school playground, Tina discovers she doesn't always need her sisters -- and that there's a lot more to Selma than first meets the eye.
     A beautiful, heartwarming story about friendship, confidence and becoming your own person, from the mega-bestselling author of Tracy Beaker, Hetty Feather and Sleepovers.

About the Author:

JACQUELINE WILSON is an extremely well-known and hugely popular author who served as Children's Laureate from 2005-7. She has been awarded a number of prestigious awards, including the British Children's Book of the Year and the Guardian Children's Fiction Award (for The Illustrated Mum), the Smarties Prize and the Children's Book Award (for Double Act, for which she was also highly commended for the Carnegie Medal). In 2002 Jacqueline was given an OBE for services to literacy in schools and in 2008 she was appointed a Dame. She was the author most-borrowed from British libraries in the last decade.

NICK SHARRATT has written and illustrated many books for children and won numerous awards for his picture books, including the Sheffield Children's Book Award and the 2001 Children's Book Award. He has also enjoyed great success illustrating Jacqueline Wilson books. Nick lives in Edinburgh.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–5—At first Tina the triplet seems an unlikely heroine; since she has been sickly and is much smaller than her sisters, she is sheltered by her overprotective mother and she depends on family to protect her. Then the girls' strict new teacher, Miss Lovejoy, insists on making Tina survive on her own, even forcing her to sit next to Selma the bully, who picks on her terribly! When Tina reveals her love of butterflies, Miss Lovejoy pairs her with Selma to build a school butterfly garden. As they dig, raise funds for supplies, and learn about each other, an understanding and friendship blooms. Madeleine Leslay reads with enthusiasm and expression, and although hers is not the voice of a seven-year-old, she does create a cast of characters with unique inflections. The story might appeal to very young listeners, but the British terminology may be a bit confusing. The audio includes facts about butterflies and gardens at the end, but the book's fun illustrations and recipe are missed. VERDICT Anyone with siblings will enjoy the sisters' interactions, and all will appreciate the fun butterfly and gardening facts and will benefit from the subtle but powerful message. Recommended.—MaryAnn Karre, Binghamton, NY
