'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 Leopold 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 was the Book of the Year and Picture Book of the Year in the New Zealand Post Book Awards for Children and Young Adults, 2005.
'The wonderful homemade illustrations and text of Clubs describe perfectly the tough, complicated world of primary school, and Lolly's spunk and intelligence give hope to lonely kids everywhere. I love this book. I wish I'd had Ms Love for my teacher.' - Alison Lester
'Pure brilliance' - John McIntyre, Radio New Zealand
'Jacqui Colley's pictures are a revelation ... something of the flavour of Lauren Child but more sophisticated. The news that it's the first of a series is very, very welcome.' - David Larsen, New Zealand Listener
