The Lonely Hearts Club by Robin Klein and Max Dann

by
August 1987, no, 93

Q: What is the most outdated, boring genre in children’s literature?
A: The boys’ boarding school story, a fossil left over from the last century.

Q: Would it be possible to revive it?
A: Out of the question. And anyway, who would want to?

 

Miracles can still happen. Robin Klein and Max Dann, two of the most popular and successful contemporary children’s authors, have combined forces to write a comedy with a boarding school setting which might, just possibly, start a whole new trend in Australian children’s literature.
