    I remember this book and The Suitcase Kid were the first gritty Jacueline Wilson books I read What I have always admired about Jacueline Wilson is the fact she never romanticised anything in her writing and I've always been in awe of her amazing uniue ability of being able to empathise so well with childrenThis book was harsh and re

    Wilson is great at making realistic characters that you can uickly come to term with giving realistic reactions to eventsHer books are great at getting children to really think about actions and their conseuences really opening the eyes of children to the world Some of her books are sensitive reads yet they are all great at sending life messages to childrenI feel as though Wilson books are a must in the lives of young children a way of ope

    'The Bed and Breakfast Star' is not a typical child's book that focuses on bunnies and other imaginative adventures that you'd find in a typical child's book If anything Jacueline WIlson tells a story of a girl called Elsa whose life is spent relocating in different parts of the country due to her mum's boyfriend losing and finding jobs She keeps herself occupied by telling herself and others whoever gives her the time of day so

The Bed and Breakfast Star

Nd I'm going to be a big star one day I do my best to cheer my family up but no one seems to l. A book that I ve read over and over again as a child and now re reading it as an adult One of my all time favourite authors whilst growing up who has the gift of reaching out to millions of children Jacueline Wilson is able to conjure stories which every type of young person is able to relate to either because of their families love lives or social lives This book is about a young girl who is incredibly mature for someone who has to deal with half the things she faces An incredibly realistic yet fictitious character who unfortunately calls out to thousands of young children in terms of their home lives The Bed and Breakfast Star gives an insight into a child s thoughts and feelings not just about what she goes through at home but also what she faces at school being a bed and breakfast kid Elsa aged 10 is a young witty character who despite the difficult life she owns always manages to keep a smile on her face Never failing to lead a cheery life Elsa is also forever trying to lighten the mood and atmosphere around her by cracking her jokes However her jokes are never appreciated in the way that she would prefer and ends up causing tension often leading to physical abuse from her stepfather Elsa uses her ambition of becoming a TV star and a famous comedienne as a means of escape from all the problems in her lifeElsa lives with her depressed mum abusive stepfather and two younger siblings who she is very often left to babysit as her parents lack the capability and are forever drowning in their miseries The family is constantly moving causing Elsa to change schools several times conseuently falling very behind academicallyThis book has allowed me to understand how some teachers make children like Elsa feel Elsa states why she resorts to bunking off school and how she is made to feel by her peers and most teachers at school I ve read how easily a young child can be demoralised especially someone who has so much going on outside of school I would place this book on the classroom bookshelf allowing children to read it in class and at home This book will allow the vast number of children who face similar issues to realise that they re not on their own and although it s a fictional book Wilson does base it on realistic and familiar settings I d recommend this book for children aged 7 11 for independent reading

Augh much any Not since we lost our lovely house and had to move into a bed and breakfast hote. We follow the story of Elsa who has lived in over 7 different places Her family are poor they can t afford to live in a big house surrounded by lots of luxuries but instead are resorted to living in a bed and breakfast hotel With mould growing on the walls not being supplied a proper breakfast and living on the top floor with a lift that doesn t work Elsa tries to find happiness in the darkest of momentsI read this book when I was a child and I found it hilarious especially Elsa s jokes However reading it again now as an adult I truly understand Jaueline Wilson s writing and understand the darker meaning behind the storyElsa s step dad is abusive to only her Her mum is severely depressed and doesn t believe there is a light at the end of the tunnel The council dump them into the smallest room a room in which they can t possibly breathe There are scenes which involve the local kids writing naughty words on the walls I was completely oblivious to this when I was reading it as a child Jaueline Wilson hits these truths beautifully Elsa is one of the happiest kids I ve had the joys of reading about She teaches you that even in the darkest of moments there is always something to look forward too and smile aboutBeautiful heartwarming and precious read

Where do baby apes sleep In apricotsI'm Elsa and that's one of my jokes I tell LOTS of jokes a. I read and then re read this book several times as a child I loved the character of Elsa and her fondness for cheesy jokes although at that age they aren t cheesy just hilarious As ever Wilson writes of a difficult subject in this story and unfortunately one that effects thousands and thousands of children every day Homelessness is a very real issue and as an adult it is intriguing to be able to look back at this story and see it through the eyes of a child Staying in a bed and breakfast sounds amazingly fun when you re ten years old As an adult living in poverty Not so much I can vividly recall so many supporting characters from this book and several scenes I remember with fondness This book doesn t feature the traditional happy ending of many other children s authors but that is perhaps what makes Wilsons writing exceptional
