Shortlisted in the UK Author Category in the National Book Awards 2018! _____ Jacqueline Wilson's bestselling, ultra famous and TOTALLY BRILLIANT Tracy Beaker is BACK!! 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? Jacqueline Wilson is one of the most loved authors for a reason. Her characters never needed a cape, or a special power to be a hero to generations of children; just huge imaginations, a bit of fierceness and a big heart. And there is no hero fiercer or more iconic than Tracy. My Mum Tracy Beaker is a fantastic new story, reuniting readers with a much-loved old friend (and some old enemies. . .) Just like old times, it’s packed full of illustrations from Nick Sharratt. _____ Praise for Tracy Beaker: ‘Wilson can still step effortlessly into the mind of a nine year old, and her chatty prose will sweep you along’ – The Daily Telegraph ‘This warm-hearted story about the importance of family and friends is classic Jacqueline Wilson’ – First News ‘[A] cosy woolly jumper of a book about wish fulfilment and its alternatives’ – The Observer

This book is written as testimony to a returnee's nightmare. It is a well-known secret that when people live abroad or in another town or city, there is always a spiritual longing for the country or town/city they leave behind. Nobody expects to return back home after a span of years in a foreign country to surmountable responsibilities. On the contrary, one assumes to return home as a hero or live a quiet life with less pressing responsibilities. Leaving her adult children and friends she has lived with in England, the writer of the book returns back to her native country Zambia and realises that she has no support networks as people she perceived to be her friends have either moved on with their lives or moved to other parts of the country. As for her immediate family, they abandoned the responsibility of caring for an elderly mother solely on her. The writer finds the 24-7 caring experience both exhausting and at the best frustrating. Hence, she turns to writing down her mother's daily observations, which serves as an escape route as it evolves positively in her caring role. However, the author perceives her book as lasting memory to her mother whom she is nursing as she journeys through her twilight days. Though as a daughter, the writer would like to cling to fond memories of her mother in her previous life before the onset of dementia, the writer acknowledges that living and caring for her mother on a day-to-day basis has made her become aware of the fact that there is still life and fondness between daughter and mother despite the fact that the latter may be engulfed in a life of distortion and confusion. By providing a tender and loving care environment, the mother flourishes in physical health although there is nothing much one can do about the reversal of mental health well-being of a dementia sufferer.

My name is Kerry Duncan and I am a single mother who feels I’ve always slept with one eye open since the birth of my son in 1992. The idea for this book came to me years ago when my son called me during the night. I always seemed to be instantly awake when he called out. I started thinking ’he must think I never sleep’, and this started me writing ideas in a note pad. Without the pressure of friends and the wonderful feedback, this book would still be just ideas in several note pads.

For a long time opinion has varied on the role of children when a loved parent, granny, relative or friend is dying/has died. There are those who exclude the child from knowledge of impending death and the funeral, arguing that it is all too distressing for a child, while others maintain that children want to be involved and can make decisions quite young. When my husband died we gave the grandchildren the choice. It was the youngest two who agreed straight away but Mary, 11, hesitated and then said " I don't want to go but if I don't I will never forgive myself." All three were glad to have gone and said their goodbyes. Brian not only believed that children are well able to be involved in the process of death, he was prepared to test it with a research project that involved not adults, but children who had had a parent die. This book records that research, its problems and results. I have known, and worked with, Brian for many years. His work is meticulous for he is dedicated to the theme, having been a clergyman and seen the many sides of dying and the way it is handled by families who, themselves, are often dealing with the unknown and their own fears of death and dying. This book is a must for all who have contact with children – parents, teachers, those in social services and all who need reassurance on the resilience of children who, yes, have many ways of coping but what they all want from their grownups is honesty, openness, involvement and love.

MY MUM HAS GONE TO SLEEP SOUNDLY FOREVER This is a very lovely and heartwarming emotional story for young children aged 7 and older to explore the content of the story, to learn to develop and to extend their developmental domains in imaginative skills, language skills, social skills and most importantly their emotional skills. Throughout this story, children will begin to learn how to put themselves in others situations, how to feel others feelings particularly in pitiable events and what they should do to soothe peoples pain. This will also be a wonderful opportunity for children to explore their feelings and to foster and nurture their emotional skills in a warm and trusting environment so they will gradually learn how to share with someone their deepest and sincerest heart. Day by day, children will be consistently guided and educated in the belief that being willing to give someone their honest sympathy and empathy is the nicest way to be and children will be encouraged to empathise with others misery. When they grow up they will know how to live, to behave, to sacrifice, to forgive, to love, to strive for better achievements and finally how to participate in creating a perfect and highly dignified society. Furthermore, after reading this story, children will gradually know how lucky and happy they are to be with their Mum, how cosy and marvellous it is to be in their Mums arms and to have her care, love and protection. They will then recognise, value and appreciate their beloved Mothers hard work.

I was supposed to see my Mum today. I waited at the park with Simon all morning. But Mum didn't come. Where could she have been? Maybe she is a spy and was off on a secret mission? Maybe she is secretly a Princess and a nasty Witch has locked her in a tower. Or maybe she discovered an underwater city full of mermaids! If my Mum was an explorer, maybe I could be too! Swinging through the trees in the jungle, finding ancient ruins, meeting different tribes, and riding canoes down waterfalls with my Mum... What an amazing adventure that would be!
