The Bed and Breakfast Star

by Jacqueline Wilson
£5.99   paperback  Random House Children's Books (2006)

The Bed and Breakfast Star by Jacqueline Wilson Where do baby apes sleep?
In apricots!
 
I'm Elsa, and that's one of my jokes (I tell LOTS of jokes and I'm going to be a big star one day). I do my best to cheer my family up - but no one seems to laugh much any more. Not since we lost our lovely house and had to move into a bed and breakfast hotel...

"Every stage of the story, every joke, every turn of phrase, has its accompanying image capturing the mood. Elsa's outpourings ought, one might think, to become tedious after fifty pages or so, but so high are her spirits, so accurate her matching of word and event, that 200 pages pass quickly. A remarkable performance. And the social message loses none of its punch from the unconventional method by which it is imparted."
(Junior Bookshelf, April 94)
"Jacqueline Wilson has a rare talent for confronting a serious subject head on and managing to make it amusing... A highly entertaining read"
