About the Story

Once there were two brothers, Max and Ollie, who invented the Ricker Racker Club. They had their own secret handshake, their own secret password, a turtle named Albert... and a silly dance that was saved for special occasions. To be in the Ricker Racker Club you have to be brave. You have to be kind. You have to not be a girl ... but some people are better than others at being both kind and brave.

The Ricker Racker Club is a gorgeous and lively story about friendship, acceptance and empathy. Patrick Guest's rhythmic text evokes an old-fashioned era, where kids are free to just be kids, and celebrates a spirit of adventure, and the importance of acts of kindness. Nathaniel Eckstrom's delightful illustrations have a wonderfully retro feel.

Told by storytellers Rita M. and Indi Gaal, this is a touching and joyous story that children will love.
