Description

The tights run wild and free in this hilarious new novel from the Queen of Comedy!


Tallulah Casey is putting all thoughts of wild boy Cain behind her. He is literally an animal in trousers... oo-er. Not like nice boy Charlie (who she's totally not thinking about either).


The Tree Sisters are chasing those golden slippers of applause at performing arts college but Dr Lightowler seems hell-bent on spoiling everything for Tallulah.


And with all her mates loved up, can Tallulah resist the call of her wild boy?

Review quote

Praise for Midsummer Tights Dream:
"Girls will relish the breakneck plot, inventive language and knockabout comedy." Guardian


"new realms of funny" Nicolette Jones, The Times


"This is a tears-running-down-your-face-in-sheer-joy type of read" Sugarscape


Praise for `Withering Tights':
"Wickedly entertaining." - Julia Eccleshare, The Guardian


"It's all a hoot." - Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times


"I don't know how, but Louise Rennison has done it again. Tallulah is even funnier, warmer, and sweeter than her cousin Georgia Nicolson. I fell in love with Withering Tights, and you will too!" - Meg Cabot, author of The Princess Diaries and Abandon series


Praise for Confessions of Georgia Nicolson:


"Raucously fun." - The Times


''You'll be falling about laughing at this." - Mizz

About Louise Rennison

Louise Rennison was a journalist, comedian and beloved author. In 1999, she introduced Georgia Nicolson to the world with ANGUS THONGS & FULL-FRONTAL SNOGGING - the first in a 10-book series. The book won the Nestle Smarties Book Prize Bronze Award and was adapted for film in 2008. In the same year, Louise was crowned Queen of Teen for the series, and in 2010, was awarded the Roald Dahl Funny Prize for WITHERING TIGHTS - the first in a spin-off following the hysterical misadventures of Georgia's cousin, Tallulah.

Sadly, Louise passed away in 2016 at 64-years-young. She left behind a legion of adoring readers who hold Georgia and the Ace Gang close to their hearts. Her books have been translated into 37 languages and have sold more than 2.6 million copies in the UK. Louise lives on through her cherished character Georgia - who was based on her own teen experiences. In Louise's and Georgia's own words: "He who laughs last, laughs the laughiest."
