The Lovereading4Kids comment
Funny and poignant, this is the most popular of all Jacqueline Wilson’s best-selling titles. Tracy Beaker, a feisty ten year old living in a children’s home, gives a sparky view of life in what she calls The Dumping Ground. She moves swiftly through her deep sadness at not having a ‘real’ home, her vigorous relationships with the other children and the ultimate joy of finding a wonderful foster mother. As fresh to read now as when it was first published twenty years ago.
The LoveReading Comment:
Probably Jacqueline Wilson’s most successful character creation. Tracy Beaker is a tough feisty little girl in a children’s home who longs to live in a real home with a real family one day. The author’s inspiration for the story came from seeing photos of children in local newspapers wanting to be fostered. It’s funny and sad in equal measure but ultimately uplifting and children of 7 or 8 upwards will want to read it again and again.
