Jacqueline Wilson Books

Dame Jacqueline Wilson, DBE, FRSL (born 17 December 1945) is an English writer known for her vast and diverse work inchildren’s literature. Her novels commonly deal with such challenging themes as adoption, divorce and mental illness. Addressing such issues has made her controversial because her readers are young.[1] From 2005 to 2007 she was British Children’s Laureate.[2][3] For her lifetime contribution as a children’s writer, Wilson is U.K. nominee for the biennial, international Hans Christian Andersen Award in 2014.[4]

Wilson is the author of many book series. Her best known work may be the Tracy Beaker series, inaugurated in 1991 by The Story of Tracy Beaker. There have been three sequels and four CBBC television adaptations: The Story of Tracy Beaker, Tracy Beaker Returns, The Dumping Ground and The Tracy Beaker Survival Files”. She is also my favorite author. 😀
