The Lovereading4Kids comment
What do you miss when you don't have siblings? This book aims to find out through a brilliant story of friendship between 3 only kids but acting like siblings; including the good and bad things about having to compete or share with a brother or sister. It is a perfectly observed story of human behaviour and one in which they realise before long there's a definite upside to being an 'only'.
Written by an award-winning author with an international reputation who is a long-established UK favourite. Anne Fine has a gift for recognizing and conveying the subtleties of children's desires and emotions.
The Only Child Club by Anne Fine
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 club is happily disbanded and the trio realizes that friends are nearly as good as having brothers and sisters - and often less annoying!
