The Tulip Touch by Anne Fine, Rachel O'Neill

A stunning adaptation for schools by the Children's Laureate Anne Fine, of her much-loved children's novel. Why is Tulip always in trouble?

The Tulip Touch is suitable for class work, drama lessons and school productions.

The issues of parenthood, families, growing up and peer pressure are explored through drama, discussion and written work.

Reviews

The following reviews are based on the original book by Anne Fine. *'The Tulip Touch grapples with the topical question of what turns children into criminals. It engrossingly chronicles a childhood friendship with a disadvantaged girl who goes to the bad. This novel will make children aged between 11 and 14 think about the dangers of peer pressure and the collective responsibility of society for unhappy children. As always, Fine teaches her lessons by making her readers feel.

. *'It's a brilliant book.
