My Great Success and Other Failures by Catherine Wilkins

Jess's cartoons are actually beginning to take off. A local comic store wants to use them in a campaign and she is in danger of becoming really rather famous (at school). This leads to some tensions with her friends. Why can't people be happy for her? It's not as if success is going to her head, or anything. Or actually that it's anything like success at all...

About the Author

Catherine Wilkins is a writer and comedian. She grew up in Hertfordshire and now lives in London. She writes jokes and stories which she performs around the country to strangers in the dark, trying to make them laugh. Catherine has always wanted to write funny stories for children and is finding the whole process more exciting than that time she bungee jumped. Which is pretty exciting. If you think about it.
