When Rebecca wades into a witch’s pond after a row with her best friend Sarah, she meets a very unusual new friend – a huge, warty toad! But Glubbslyme is no ordinary toad.

Jacqueline Wilson

24424 jacqueline wilson 1 206738

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 countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. Since having her daughter, Emma, she has been writing full time.

Her insightful and emotionally challenging books not only stretch reading ability, but give young readers a glimpse into many kinds of lives. Smart girls, strong girls, bad girls, brave girls. Girls keeping their families going, girls trying to get away… Jacqueline Wilson’s written about them all! These powerful stories of plucky girls in difficult circumstances won’t fail to strike a chord.

She has written over 70 best-selling books, and several have even been adapted for TV – most famously The Story of Tracy Beaker. Her signing sessions attract huge crowds of fans and last for hours! Over 25 million copies of her books have now been sold in the UK alone.

In 2007 Jacky Daydream was published, an inspirational true story of how a shy schoolgirl became a superstar author. This was followed by My Secret Diary, a captivating account of Jacky’s teenage years.

In June 2002 Jacqueline was given an OBE for services to literacy in schools, and she was the Children’s Laureate from 2005-2007. She also became a Dame in December 2007.

    This is a great book, but not my favourite. It also taught me a new word ‘Distinguished’ which was quite cool :)

    Not one that you can get into straight away as the frog (Glubbslyme) is 100 years old and talks very old fashioned. Its quite hard to pronounce the words correctly,although when its half way through you really would enjoy this book. I understand that people think this book is “rubbish” but its not the worst book ever in my opinion :)

    This is a really interesting book – slightly old fashioned, but overall enjoyable. It follows Rebecca and Glubbslyme, a girl and a frog, but the frog can do magic! It is very fun and I would recommend it.
