You will be amazed and enthralled by their beauty and that’s not all! These little fairies are amazing and a delight!

My Review; Got something a little different today on the blog. Got sent this lovely childrens book by Clink Street to review with my four year old daughter who loves fairies.

First impressions was that the cover is beautiful, colourful and eye catching! It is a beautifully set out story with large print writing and easy to read! Each page has gorgeous, detailed illustrations to accompany the story. My daughter liked to count how many fairiers was in each picture.

My daughter enjoyed the story, so do I! Perfect little rymes throughout. This is the perfect book for any little girl to dive into a fairy kingdom. I’ve read this book several times to my daughter now and she still loves it. Magical. Highly recommend. A well deserved five stars. Perfect for little ladies.

My Mum Tracy Beaker – Jaqueline Wilson ★★★★★

Blurb; Tracy has returned, hand in hand with her daughter Jess, she’s ready to make her childhood dreams come true.

Jess and Tracy Beaker are the perfect team. They do everything together.

Jess thinks Tracy is the best mum ever, even when she shouts at her teachers!

Tracy has made the perfect home for Jess, leaving The Dumping Ground far behind her.

Yes, their flat’s a bit mouldy. It’s only just big enough for two. And the Duke Estate is a bit scary.
But it’s their happy home.

Until Sean Godfrey, Tracy’s rich boyfriend, whisks them away to his mansion, life of fast cars and celebrity stardom.

Will Jess’s brilliant mum turn into a new person altogether?

And will Tracy realise that her childhood dream might not be what she needs after all?

My Review; Now I am a blog open to all genres and ages. I may be 24 but Jacqueline Wilson is an author I will always love and read. It’s thanks to Jacqueline I got into reading! I grew up with the mighty Tracy Beaker so this was a must read for me and I wasn’t disappointed at all.

This book brought back so many memories for me! The real Tracy Beaker is back with a mini her! Oh dear. Jess is just like her mum but a smaller version. Parts had me laughing at loud, other parts sad. It is a brilliant story with a lovely ending. I loved all the little pictures throughout Nick Sharratt is a brilliant illustrator.

I loved every second of it even if I did devour it within a day. Highly recommend! An easy read for me but just what I needed, to get away from adulthood and take a step back into my early teenage days for a while. Its a fantastic story of the beaker girls. Five stars from me. You’re never too old for Jacqueline Wilson.

Clover Moon – Jacqueline Wilson ★★★★★

Blurb: Clover Moon’s imagination is her best escape from a life of hardship in poverty-stricken Victorian London. When tragedy plunges her into a world of grief, Clover realizes that everything she loved about the place she called home is gone. Clover hears of a place she could run to, but where will she find the courage – and the chance – to break free? And could leaving her family be just what she needs to find a place that really feels like home?

My Review: I know! I know! Some of my followers will be like why is she reviewing this? Well, growing up I was always a massive fan of Jacqueline’s work and it is thanks to Jacqueline that I found my love of reading. I must also admit she is still one of my guilty pleasures.

Clover Moon is brilliant. It would appeal to older mature children and readers. This book is set in the victorian times and does include the subjects of death, poverty and even beatings. Clover Moon is written well and easy to read but does contain quiet long chapters for a children’s book, it is a long story but one I loved. There were characters I loved and characters I hated but I must say what a brilliant storyline and especially a nice ending, making the perfect children’s story. Children reading this story will also be learning about victorian times which is also a bonus. 

I think Clover Moon would make a brilliant film. I awarded a well deserved five stars and would highly recommend this story to you all (yes, even those older children like me. Don’t be ashamed). Reading Clover Moon took me back to my younger years and I enjoyed reading every chapter of this, it has brought a big smile back to this face.
