"Her ability to create interesting, lovable characters who navigate 9 to 12-year-olds through key moments in history is unmatched" The Times "Oh my goodness! Opal Plumstead is Jacqueline Wilson's 100th book! That's prolific, right? I first discovered her work when I read The Illustrated Mum. It made me laugh. It made me cry. And, more than anything else, it felt truthful. I've been a fan ever since. So I'm proud to be reviewing her centenary story ... [Opal is] a fabulous central character - bright and sparky and an original thinker ... You can't help but root for her as she beats her own path through a rapidly changing world with real heart and determination ... Oh, and it reads like a breeze. Of course. What else would you expect?" -- Jill Murphy The BookbagRezension:
- "A brilliant writer of wit and subtlety." --"The Times" - "She should be prescribed for all cases of reading reluctance." --"Independent on Sunday" - "Has a rare gift for writing lightly and amusingly about emotional issues." --"Bookseller" - This wonderful new wartime story will be published to coincide with the one hundred year anniversary of the start of the First World War. And like one of Roald Dahl's most timeless and beloved novels, much of the action takes place at a sweet factory!
