Takeover Week: Jacqueline Wilson
Bestselling children's author Jacqueline Wilson is our Guest Editor. Even as a child Jacqueline knew she wanted to write but it wasn't until she was 50 that she devised her most famous creation, Tracy Beaker. She has now written over a hundred books and last month published a modernised version of the classic children's book What Katy Did, changing the title to Katy. Her choice of topics reflect all her current interests and passions: attitudes to disability with actress, Nicola Miles-Wildin who gave her invaluable advice while Jacqueline was writing Katy; the allure of second hand bookshops; exploring how to be active, productive, and distinctive over 70 with a trio of inspiring older women; and the enduring appeal of our childhood toys.
