Product Description

Superstar author Jacqueline Wilson takes a frank and captivating look at her own childhood in this autobiography. It’s a tale of friendships, loneliness, books, toys, family and much more. Read it to see how Jacky played with paper dolls like April in Dustbin Baby; how she sat entrance exams like Ruby in Double Act, and how – just like Tracy Beaker – she loved writing and making up stories! Funny, warm and moving, this book shows how Jacqueline Wilson started to become a writer, and where she got her inspiration from.

    This book caught my eye in stores, and after reading it, I became an instant Jacky fan. While taking readers on a journey through her childhood, Jacqueline Wilson has produced another hit among children. This is now one of my favourite books!

    This book is really brilliant! It’s very interesting to see how Jacqueline Wilson’s childhood was like. I also was really intresed to see that some of the things in her books she has expirenced to for example her best friend’s mum has cancer just like Jayni’s mum in Lola Rose,also that she used to play with paper dolls when she was a child just like april in dustbin baby. I would definetly recommend that any mega fan of Jacqueline Wilson should read this book.

    Jacqueline Wilson is THE author to go to when looking for a good book for young girls although to be honest her old stuff is a lot more interesting and meaning compared to the new. classics such as Double act and Best of Friends and don’t forget the story of Tracy Beaker. This book is the story of her life.

I thought it was a very interesting book because even though there wasn’t a story plot, you got to see what it was like to be Jacqueline Wilson when she was younger and what it was like living with her family and growing up. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes an autobiography. Well done jackie!!!!

    I love it when she tells us that when he was born she was put in the nursery an d when the nurses came after every 4 hours she’d just think that was her mother. She also tells us that she shut eyes and imagined that her mother was holding her. She’s never open her eyes she was waiting 4 the day when her mother picks her up. She tells us that when her mum picks her up for the first time she says ” she’s just like i imagined” that makes her very happy.

    I would rate it 10/10 if you liked auto-biographies and info, but for me I would rate it a positive 5/10.

In this auto-biography about her you find out about her teachers, schools, parents, outings, holidays and friends. Yet again Jacqueline Wilson has written another brilliant book that I would recomnend to anybody.

    The book was OK, but just not the type of book that I’d like to read – but maybe for someone else. I found that this book babbled a bit, and it was kind of in a messy order. Personally, I prefer her other books but this one was a OK book. I won’t say it’s rubbish, because it’s not, but after a while of reading it just bored me a little. But Jacqueline Wilson is a very good writer, to be honest ;) This by the way, is just my opinion. Some of you could really like this book.

    I think this book is really good not just because i love jacquelinwe wilson because it starts right at the beginning when she was born and to where she is now. It has 33 chapters and every chapter has its own subject. This would really be an excellent book for 6-12 year olds because i loved it when i was 8 and it wasn’t to hard for me

    thanks for reading this book review CHICKAWAWA p.s i would give this 5 stars but 4 stars for different readers

    jacky daydream is an excellent book about jacqueline wilson`s life when she was younger. it is like she is telling you the whole thing of stuff like what she did and where she went for holidays and all kinds of things. i have been so inspired by all of her books that i would someday like to become a famous writer but just now i am going to have to stick to writing stories on peices of paper and writing reviews. i hope you like her books too and enjoy them as much as i do .

    This is a brilliant book all about Jaquelines Life.It starts off as she is born and finishes right at where she is now. I would reccomend it to any person girl or boy. I’d give it **stars!
