Reviews

  • Told in the zany, entirely convincing voice of Tracy Beaker herself . . . The strains of communal life with other children, rivalries and friendships and jokes, all spring to life, and Tracy's prose is decorated throughout with cheeky line drawings

    The Sunday Times
  • An appealing mix of events and reactions that are both entertaining and moving. A book that lingers in the mind long after it is put down

    Guardian
  • A sensitive and beautifully observed story . . . Our young readers appreciated both the humour and the pathos

    Federation of Children's Book Groups, 1991 Pick of the Year
  • Tracy is lively and spirited, and her narrative funny and moving

    The Bookseller
  • A breath of fresh air. It is entertaining yet tender but by no means sentimental when it confronts the need we all have for commitment in relationships, for trust, for love . . . A real bonus is that the book genuinely celebrates the act of writing - and not by preaching, I promise
