Reviews

Jean Ure's books are funny, funky, feisty - and fantastic reads! - Jacqueline Wilson Praise for Passion Flower: A funny and realistic read - we loved it. - Mizz Praise for Pumpkin Pie: The heroine I've been waiting for. - Times Praise for Shrinking Violet: Excellent for any nine-up and will almost certainly lead to an addiction to Ure. - The Observer Praise for Becky Bananas: The writing transcends any trace of heaviness. - The Guardian And jere's just a sample of what children are saying about Jean's fantastic new character-led series, Frankie Foster: Amazing! Full of shocks and surprises on every page! Beth, age 9 Fizzy Pop was so exciting, I couldn't put it down! Emily, age 11 Frankie Foster steps out of the pages of this spell-binding book and comes to life. Imogen, age 12

About the Author

Jean Ure

Jean Ure was born in Surrey, and when growing up, knew that she was going to be a writer but she also wanted to be a ballet dancer.

She wrote her first novel when she was six years old which was about a little girl called Carol. Jean spent her teenage years writing and had her first book published when she was just sixteen – an event that prompted her to leave school the following year to continue writing. However she spent the next several years ‘scrubbing floors, waiting at tables, selling groceries’. Jean also worked as a nurse and at the BBC before enrolling at the Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art in London, where she met her husband. She worked for several years in Paris as a translator for DATO and UNESCO and wrote romantic novels. Jean Ure is a well-known, respected and high-profile author whose numerous other titles, which include Love And Kisses, Star Crazy Me and, most recently, Jelly Baby, have received critical acclaim.

Jean is a vegan and animal lover. She lives with her husband, seven dogs and two cats in a 300 year old house in Croydon.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
