Boggle hats are the latest thing.
Everybody at school wants one - but only Lola, expert parent-nagger, actually has one. So she decides to form a club to show the other children how best to nag their parents into buying them one.
Tactics range from the "Oh, please, please, please" Nag to the Huffy Nag and the Blazing Tantrum.
But when the children try out some of these nags, they get mixed results - and discover that the best way of all is either just to be pleasant and polite and say please, or even earn a bit of money and buy one for themselves!
