The Story of Tracy Beaker




First published in 1991, The Story of Tracy Beaker has been adapted into a television series and continues to capture the hearts of generations of young readers.

STRICTLY PRIVATE. KEEP OUT ON PAIN OF DEATH.

I'm Tracy Beaker - have you heard of me? I'm stuck in The Dumping Ground just at the moment, but I'm sure my Mum will come and get me soon. A certain Justine-Hateful-Littlewood has stolen my best friend Louise but I don't let it get me down. I never cry. Ever. I've done a bit of screaming and stamping in my time mind you … I like eating birthday cake. And Smarties and Big Macs with French fries and strawberry milkshakes. I also like story writing. This is a story all about me - so I know you'll enjoy it!

Includes exclusive material: In ‘The Backstory’ you can read an interview with Jacqueline Wilson and take Nick Sharratt's drawing challenge!
