About the Book

Louise Rennison, nationally bestselling author of the Confessions of Georgia Nicolson series, returns with another hilarious adventure starring Georgia’s cousin Tallulah Casey.
In A Midsummer Tights Dream, Tallulah’s second great (mis)adventure, things are starting to look up for the budding star. She has been officially admitted to the Dother Hall performing arts program in Yorkshire. Her corkers have done some developing since last term. And she’s picked up some advice on snogging from dear old Georgia. So she’s ready to return to the stage—and face her crushes again.
But Tallulah will have more than boy drama to deal with. This term’s project is Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, and Tallulah has been cast as Bottom, the fool who spends most of the play with the head of a donkey. Even worse, if the show isn’t a complete success, the school won’t have enough money to stay open for another year.

Educator and Librarian Resources

Critical Praise

“It wouldn’t be a Rennison book without plenty of humor, self-deprecation, and literary and musical references. Lullah’s adoring fans will not be disappointed by this entertaining ride on “the showbiz express.” - The Horn Book

“Readers will enjoy Tallulah’s use of hilarious British slang (don’t worry, there is a glossary) and her vibrant personality, and off-kilter descriptions perfectly capture the exuberance and awkwardness of early adolescence.” - School Library Journal

PRAISE FOR WITHERING TIGHTS: “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

“Louise Rennison has created another superbly realistic and hilarious young teen heroine, a younger Georgia Nicolson, in the first book of a new series.

“Fans of Georgia Nicolson will be thrilled to meet her cousin Tallulah in Printz Honor-winner Rennison’s new madcap melodrama. Undeniably entertaining; Georgia would be pleased.” - Kirkus
