Jacqueline Wilson's Funny Girls

Previously published as The Jacqueline Wilson Collection




Two lively and hilarious tales from much-loved award-winning author Jacqueline Wilson.

THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER

I'm Tracy Beaker. This is a book all about me. I'd read it if I were you. It's the most incredible dynamic heart-rending story. Honest.

SHORTLISTED FOR THE SMARTIES PRIZE AND THE CARNEGIE MEDAL

THE BED AND BREAKFAST STAR

I'm Elsa, and I'm hoping to be a big star one day. I tell jokes all the time to try and cheer my family up. Trouble is, no-one seems to laugh much any more. Not since we lost our lovely house and had to move into a bed and breakfast hotel . . .

Praise for Jacqueline Wilson's Funny Girls

“The chatty style draws young readers straight into the story, and the constant stream of corny jokes masks, but does not conceal, the deeper issues”

Daily Telegraph on THE BED AND BREAKFAST STAR

“An unsentimental and truthful book that is even better for a strong sense of mischief”

Independent on Sunday on THE BED AND BREAKFAST STAR

“An appealing mix of events and reactions that are both entertaining and moving. A book that lingers in the mind long after it is put down”

Guardian on THE BED AND BREAKFAST STAR

“Tracy is a marvellously feisty creation: she is arrogant and rude, but the occasional glimpses we get of the vulnerable girl behind the tough exterior are enough to endear her to the reader . . . The excellent spiky illustrations by Nick Sharratt on nearly every page are a perfect complement to the text”

The Bookseller on THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER

“A sensitive and beautifully observed story . . . our young readers appreciated both the humour and the pathos”

Federation of Children's Book Groups on THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER

“Told in the zany, entirely convincing voice of Tracy Beaker herself . . . The strains of communal life with other children, rivalries and friendships and jokes, all spring to life, and Tracy's prose is decorated throughout with cheeky line drawings”

Sunday Times on THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER
