The Flip Flop Club: Charmed Summer

Posted on March 30, 2012 by in News

It’s nearly here! On Thursday the 5th of April, Oxford University Press will be launching the first book in our fabulous, fun new middle grade series, The Flip Flop Club.

The Flip Flop Club: Charmed Summer

Flip Flop Club

Lead Editor Sara Grant has been working on the project with editor Conrad Mason, writer Ellen Renner (writing here as Ellen Richardson) and the OUP team:

I’ve always considered The Flip-Flop Club a mix of Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants and Scooby-Doo. Friendship and adventure are at the heart of this series. I’ve read Charmed Summer probably twenty times and I love it each and every time.

The Flip-Flop Club was a joy from the very first brainstorming. It’s one of those projects that flows effortlessly from idea to final edit. I always look forward to my time with Elly, Sierra and Tash on Sunday Island and have more ideas than we could ever use. It really is a charmed project.

OUP have really gone all out with their promotion for the series, including an absolutely amazing website which includes a count-down to the launch of each book as well as info, games, a special secret area for Flip Flop Club members, and this gorgeous book trailer. We feel more summery already!

Only another four days, ten hours and twenty minutes or so to go…
