|The Butterfly Club|
12th February 2015
The Butterfly Club is a book by Jacqueline Wilson. It is about a girl called Tina who is a triplet. Her sisters Phil and Maddie can just about do everything better than her. Tina is much smaller than her sisters and relies on them most of the time. They protect her from Selma Johnson, the meanest girl in class. When the girls start scary Miss Lovejoy's class, they are split up and Tina has to sit next to Selma Johnson! But Tina becomes friends with Selma and they start a butterfly garden. Tina draws lots of pictures of butterflies and sends one in to Ruby Red, her favourite television programme. She gets to go on Ruby Red's show with Phil, Maddie and Selma. They meet up with Ruby Red (who appeared in Double Act when she was a child) and her twin sister Garnet, who is the executive producer.
