Jacqueline Hyde

Jacqueline Hyde


When Jacqueline Hyde finds the little glass bottle in Grandma's attic her life suddenly changes. Goodbye clean, good Jacqueline. Hello cheeky, loud Jacqueline Bad.

It's fun at first. Exciting. But then Jacqueline Bad gets into serious trouble. And although she keeps trying to be her old self, the bad side just won't let go...

A darkly addictive fable, truly absorbing.


  • Robert Swindells, perhaps more than any other contemporary author, narrates modern-day fables which not only reflect present-day society but also peoples them with living breathing characters. Jacqueline Hyde adds to his soaring reputation as a master story-teller in the Dickensian tradition
