The Only Child Club

By Anne Fine

Illustrated by Arthur Robins

What do you miss when you don’t have siblings? Former Children's Laureate and much-loved author Anne Fine aims to find out in this perfectly observed story of human behaviour.

From the author of Bill's New Frock comes a gentle, humorous illustrated chapter book about the pros and cons of being an only child. Ryan wants to start a club. An Only Child Club. He knows that as an only child he doesn’t always have the same experiences as some of his classmates. He recruits two similarly deprived friends who join him in an experimental few days of constant bickering, fighting over who gets the free gift from the cereal box and spending a whole day making a model, only to have it destroyed. Having had a taste of what it’s like to have siblings, the trio begin to realize that friends can be nearly as good as brothers and sisters – and often less annoying!
