"It was a Wednesday and Julia was in a bad mood … ". Her school day had been horrible; beset by mishaps and admonitions from the teacher. But what young Julia quickly discovers is that her Uncle is a member of the "Triple C". "The Childish Children's Club" has a response for every sadness, there are no rules and no regulations and you have full licence to be as childish as you like: "You can ask 'Are we there yet?" as many times as you like. You can believe in magic, fairies, trolls and goblins"; you can giggle about what every you want; leaf fights are highly encouraged, and puddles are purely there to be jumped in. What bliss!
