Join the Triple C, the Children's Childish Club, and be as childish as you like! Julia's bad day takes a turn in this delightful debut picture book that shows the joy that can come from simply being a child.

Julia has had a terrible day and her uncle is trying to cheer her up after school. He does this by introducing her to the Triple C, the Childish Children's Club. The Club encourages people to slow down and enjoy certain things that are easy to neglect. Like walking at your own pace even if everybody else is rushing past, smiling at strangers, jumping in puddles, collecting conkers, and, especially, asking 'Are we there yet?' as many times as you like. Or simply by imagining silly or preposterous or lovely things.

Staffan Gnosspelius's delightful, sometimes hilarious, and utterly unique illustrations are full of emotion and the perfect complement to this story of making a bad day better. Julia and the Triple C will inspire young readers in simple and unexpected ways.
