The Reptile Club
by Maureen Fergus, illustrated by Elina Ellis
JOIN THE REPTILE CLUB
WHEN: Fridays at lunch
REQUIREMENTS: Must love reptiles
OPEN TO: Everyone!
There are lots of clubs at Rory’s new school, but none seem quite right for him. He doesn’t like knitting, the Astronaut Club is too intimidating and the Extra Math Homework Club is no fun at all. So Rory decides to form his own club.
Surely there are other kids who love reptiles as much as he does! But the first members of The Reptile Club aren’t exactly what Rory was expecting . . . A sweet and hilarious story about finding somewhere to belong, celebrating the things you love and finding new friends in unlikely places.
