The Lovereading4Kids comment
A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.
Laugh out loud at this launch title of a brilliant new series by Queen of Teen author Louise Rennison. Tallulah Casey, cousin of the irrepressible Georgia Nicholson, signs up for an amazing residential summer school of performing arts in the depths of Yorkshire. How Tallulah acclimatises herself to Yorkshire, the arty world of Dother Hall and, above all, being in a world with boys is wickedly entertaining.
Winner of the Roald Dahl Funny Prize 2010 (Funniest Book for Children aged Seven to Fourteen).
Withering Tights by Louise Rennison
The misadventures of Tallulah Casey! Hilarious new series from Queen of Teen -- laugh your tights off at the (VERY) amateur dramatic antics of Talullah and her bonkers mates. Boys, snogging and bad acting guaranteed! Picture the scene: Dother Hall performing arts college somewhere Up North, surrounded by rolling dales, bearded cheesemaking villagers (male and female) and wildlife of the squirrely-type. On the whole, it's not quite the showbiz experience Tallulah was expecting! but once her mates turn up and they start their 'FAME! I'm gonna liiiiive foreeeeeever, I'm gonna fill my tiiiiights' summer course things are bound to perk up. Especially when the boys arrive. (When DO the boys arrive?) Six weeks of parent-free freedom. BOY freedom. Freedom of expression! cos it's the THEATRE dahling, theatre!!
