Review quote

"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 *show more
