The Lovereading4Kids comment

May 2013 Book of the Month A funny, moving and heart-warming story of four children who discover a way to make wishes come true. Echoing the classic E Nesbit novel, Five Children and It, this new story from this mega-selling author, winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Prize, is a brilliant read not just for those familiar with the original book but for any of Wilson's millions of fans.

Synopsis

Four Children and It by Jacqueline Wilson

Four Children and It is the number one bestseller from Jacqueline Wilson, the award-winning, bestselling creator of Tracy Beaker , Hetty Feather and The Illustrated Mum. Jacqueline Wilson's millions of fans will be gripped by the relationship between step-sisters Rosalind and Smash, just as they love the story of sisters Jodie and Pearl in My Sister Jodie or Lily and Pixie in Lily Alone.

Jacqueline Wilson writes....'Readers always ask who inspired me to be a writer. Well, I adored E Nesbit's books as a child - and I liked her lifestyle too. She liked Liberty clothes, silver jewellery and buns for tea, and so do I! My favourite E Nesbit story is Five Children and It - and this is my modern day tribute to her fantastic story.'
