FAB (Friends Against Bullying) Club

Being bullied at school is something I remember vividly and I wouldn't want it to happen to anyone else. It inspired this, my first chapter book for 8-12 year olds. FAB Club was a big hit with kids and led to the sequel: FAB Club 2 - Friends Against Cyberbullying.

FAB Club was a finalist in the 2017 Wishing Shelf Book Awards.

FAB Club is available on  AmazoniBooksKoboFishpond, Whitcoulls, BooktopiaBarnes & Noble and in all good book shops and libraries.

FAB Club 2 – Friends Against Cyberbullying

FAB Club 2 was a winner in The Wishing Shelf Book Awards. This means a lot to me, as the awards organisers send books out to kids in schools and the books are voted on by them. Thanks, kids!

Trevor says Yes!

At the end of the long summer holidays, the FAB Club read that their school has run out of money and won’t be opening. Celebration turns to dismay when they find out that they are all going to different schools instead. At first their phones are a lifeline, keeping them in contact. But then the horrible text messages start.
Someone is trying to destroy the FAB club and everything they stand for. Will the club be able to stop them and bring the friends back together?

Cyber bullying is a big problem for children – and adults. So, books of this nature are vital if we are to inform children on this difficult subject. This is sensitively written and very accessible for 9 – 13 year olds. The children in my class enjoyed it, and we used it as a start to a cyber-bullying discussion. Primary school teacher

FAB Club 2 is available on  AmazonFishpond, Booktopia and in all good book shops and libraries.

The Book of Culls: The Best Human Cull Comics

Human Cull is a tongue-in-cheek cartoon about an alien making the world a better place by removing the most annoying people. Litter-droppers, telemarketers and other miscreants are all vaporized painlessly by ray gun, leaving a nicer world for the rest of us to enjoy. 

The comic appeared first on Comics Sherpa in 2007 and was selected to run on GoComics in 2013. This collection brings together the best comics from the last ten years.

Genius. If Charles Schulz had been rejected by all the syndicates and turned bitter his strip would have looked something like this.

– Jonathan Lemon, creator of the comic, Rabbits Against Magic.
