Book Club: because reading a great book and then not being able to discuss it is like winning tattslotto and not telling anyone about it! 

 

Book Club: Year 1 & 2 - November 10th - Dr Boogaloo and the Girl Who Lost Her Laughter


For our November Year 1 & 2 Book Club we're reading Dr Boogaloo And The Girl Who Lost Her Laughter by Lisa Nicol

Enchanting, timeless and surprising - this extraordinary novel will touch the hearts (and ears) of children and adults alike. Dr Boogaloo was no ordinary doctor. Not at all like the one you might visit if you had a sore tummy. No, Dr Boogaloo was a very different type of doctor. He treated folks who suffered from rather unusual complaints. And how did he treat them? Why, with the most powerful medicine known to mankind ...Music! Blue was no ordinary girl. For starters, her name was Blue. But what was truly extraordinary about Blue was the fact that she hadn't laughed for 712 days. Not a hee hee, a ho ho or even a tiny tee hee. According to Dr Boogaloo, music can cure anything. (Of course, you need the right dose of the right music. No point listening to a jive if you're in need of some boogie-woogie, and you can't just substitute a toot for a blow!) But no laughter was definitely a case for alarm. Can Dr Boogaloo compose a cure before Blue loses her laughter forever?

The Little Bookroom Logo

The Little Bookroom - bringing children's books to Melbourne since 1960.

The Little Bookroom opened its doors to the public on Friday the 13th October, 1960, the first bookstore in Australia to stock only children's books. It has been a Melbourne institution ever since!

The shop is named for a collection of stories by Eleanor Farjeon who wrote:

"I am proud and happy to know you've chosen the title of my book for the title of your Bookshop in the City my Father first set foot in the 1850s when he emigrated to Australia as a boy of 16. The stories he told me of his arrival in Melbourne have always made it seem to be one of 'my' cities. Thank you for giving me a home in it"

Edward Ardizzone illustrated 'The Little Bookroom' and provided us with an original ink illustration for our logo, a treasure indeed.
