The Only Child Club

The Only Child Club by Anne Fine, illustrated by Arthur Robins (Walker Books)
HC RRP 21.95
ISBN 9781406348064
Reviewed by Anastasia Gonis

What is it that an only child never gets to do? Are they missing out on anything significant? Ryan, an only child, decides to create a list of only children from within his class, to discover if there is something missing from their life.

He is meticulous and detailed in his preparations, adding and deleting names as he goes through his list to make sure he’s chosen the right children. But the hilarious and surprising outcome of his experiment is hardly what he expected.

This is a fun-filled chapter book for beginners with lots of terrific illustrations to support Anne Fine’s clever theme.
