Everybody knows Tracy Beaker, Jacqueline Wilson's best-loved character. But what do they know about Jacqueline herself? In this fascinating book, discover: how Jacky played with paper dolls like April in "Dustbin Baby"; how she dealt with an unpredictable father like Prue in "Love Lessons"; how she sat entrance exams like Ruby in "Double Act". But most of all how Jacky loved reading and writing stories. Losing herself in a new world was the best possible way she could think of spending her time. From the very first story she wrote, "Meet the Maggots", it was clear that this little girl had a very vivid imagination. But who would've guessed that she would grow up to be the mega-bestselling, award-winning Jacqueline Wilson! Jacqueline Wilson takes a look back at her own childhood in this captivating story of friendships, loneliness, books, toys, parents and much more. She explores her early years with the same warmth and lightness of touch that imbues her novels and covers such difficult issues as her parents' extra-marital affairs with delicacy. With photographs and new illustrations by Nick Sharratt, this book is a delight for all of Jacky's fans, and a treat for any new readers too.

Just got one for Santa's stocking I missed out on the Jacqueline Wilson bundle on thebookpeople, so this is just as much of a bargain. I agree, Poundland is cracking for books lately; I got a Tony Parsons' book (The Family Way) for my sis too.

I used to be a library manager back in the day for a senior school... girls love her books!
