About the Author

Jacqueline Wilson was our Guest Editor in February 2012.  Click here to see her selection of books.

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first ‘novel’ when she was nine, filling in countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. As a teenager she started work for a magazine publishing company and then went on to work as a journalist on Jackie magazine (which she was told was named after her!) before turning to writing novels full-time.

One of Jacqueline’s most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. Since then Jacqueline has been on countless awards shortlists and has gone on to win many awards. The Illustrated Mum won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award, the 1999 Children’s Book of the Year at the British Book Awards and was also shortlisted for the 1999 Whitbread Children’s Book Award. Double Act won the prestigious Smarties Medal and the Children’s Book Award as well as being highly commended for the Carnegie Medal. The Story of Tracy Beaker won the 2002 Blue Peter People’s Choice Award.

Jacqueline is one of the nation’s favourite authors, and her books are loved and cherished by young readers not only in the UK but all over the world. According to a recent Mori poll, Jacqueline was voted English children favourite children’s author. She has sold millions of books and in the UK alone the total stands at over 25 million!

In 2002 Jacqueline was awarded the OBE for services to literacy in schools and from 2005 to 2007 she was the Children’s Laureate. In 2008 she became Dame Jacqueline Wilson.

2011 saw the 20th Anniversary of her best known novel, The Story of Tracy Beaker,which is not only still hugely popular but has given life to two sequels and an award-winning TV series for CBBC.

CD- Audio. Jacqueline Wilson's storytelling powers are shown at their absolute best yet again in this brilliant story in which Lily must contend with 3 younger siblings while her mother is away with the new boyfriend and her step dad fails to turn up to look after them. How Lily copes or not at times at such a young and tender age is testament to her strength and fortitude and it provides the reader with someone to look up to and possibly even create as a role model. It's proof that being home alone isn't easy particularly when there are younger siblings to contend with and in the back of her mind the fear that the school or social services might find out.

This heady collection features love poems and prose excerpts by writers including Sappho, Shakespeare, Milton, the Brontes, and Wordsworth.

A collection of classic poetry and prose based on the enduring themes of love and romance, with an introduction by prize-winning children's author Jacqueline Wilson. Includes material from the Romantics, Thomas Hardy, John Milton, Jane Austen, and Emily Bronte as well as Ovid, Catullus, and less well-known authors. Kate Agnew is a previous chair of the Children's Booksellers Association. She has also contributed to the Cambridge Guide to Children's Books and has edited several children's books.
