Description

A humorous and sensitive story about growing up and being the odd one out, from former Children's Laureate and much-loved author Anne Fine. Rosie's classmates think they are too old for birthday parties, but Rosie is determined to change their minds. From the author of Bill's New Frock comes a humorous and sensitive story about growing up and feeling like the odd one out. Rosie loves everything about parties: balloons, presents, games, birthday cake, goody bags! So she is disappointed when some of her classmates announce that they have outgrown parties and would rather go to the cinema or bowling. Rosie decides to set up the Party Club and remind everyone of how much fun they'll be missing out on. But it's harder than she thought, particularly when even her parents don't seem to like birthday parties much.
