Billy Button, one of Lolly's classmates from Room 7, can't keep his mouth shut or his temper under control. It makes preparation for the annual Pet and Produce Day a nightmare. Not only that: Room 7 is full of over-achievers, teacher's pets and anarchists - and worse, Billy has to wrestle with the community judges' arcane and rigid rules. Billy's imagination and his Pet and Produce Day projects run riot, and so do the events of P & P Day - just the way Ms Love likes things to go: 'not with a whimper, but a bang!' This emotionally engaging story, as told by Lolly Leopold, explodes onto the page with wit, colour and that magical ingredient that is common to De Goldi and Colley collaborations: originality. Billy will charm and surprise the thousands of readers who love Clubs.
