A still from Hetty Feather

Jacqueline Wilson's Hetty Feather has been brought to life in a West End show in London.

The story about a Victorian orphan in search of her parents was written by the Tracy Beaker creator and first published back in 2009.

The book is also being turned into a new TV series for the CBBC channel.

Roald Dahl favourites Matilda and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory have both been turned into successful West End shows too.
