The Butterfly Club

Written by Jacqueline Wilson

Illustrated by Nick Sharratt

The Butterfly Club Synopsis

Tina is a triplet, but she's always been the odd one out. Her sisters Phil and Maddie are bigger and stronger and better at just about everything. Luckily, they look after teeny-tiny Tina wherever they go - but when the girls start in scary, super-strict Miss Lovejoy's class, they're split up, and Tina has to fend for herself for the first time. Tina is horrified when she's paired up with angry bully Selma, who nobody wants to be friends with. But when Miss Lovejoy asks them to help her create a butterfly garden in the school playground, Tina discovers she doesn't always need her sisters - and that there's a lot more to Selma than first meets the eye. A beautiful, heartwarming story about friendship, confidence and becoming your own person, from the mega-bestselling author of Tracy Beaker, Hetty Feather and Sleepovers.

The Good Book Guide Review

Tina, Phil and Maddie are triplets. They do everything together. However, when they go into Miss Lovejoy’s class, they get separated. Tina is very unhappy – she has been paired with the bully, Selma. Then Tina and Selma begin making a butterfly garden together, and things start to change. This compassionate and moving story shows how friendship can blossom in the unlikeliest of places. (Ages 8–11)
