So, we had a chat with Jacqueline Wilson

In the glamour of Wood Green we often bump into world famous authors. Wood Green, being the most cosmopolitan area in the capital, we rub shoulders with all the stars. It's just like that. And so we had a chat with Jacqueline Wilson, who is the magical queen of real life kids fiction.
We couldn't believe that she hadn't given us her top five favourite books of all time (in no particular order), so after a little persuasion, here we are.
Just to remind you, these are Jacqueline Wilson's fave books of all time (in no particular order)

Adult top five
1 The Collected short stories of Katherine Mansfield
2 Charlotte Bronte Jane Eyre
3 Charles Dickens Great Expectations
4 Sylvia Plath The Bell Jar
5 Anne Tyler The Accidental Tourist

Childrens' top five
1 Noel Streatfield Ballet Shoes
2 Louisa M Alcott Little Women
3 Susan Coolidge What Katy Did
4 Francess Hodgeson Burnett A Little Princess
5 E Nesbitt The Railway Children

Now, if you're reading this and you're thinking 'eh?', you should probably
a. Decide what your 5 favourite books of all time (in no particular order) are.
b. email us at with those 5 books
c. wait unti December 1st, whe you could win 20 books.

hey, what's the worst that could happen.

There's other things, but i've worked for about 75 hours this week and i'm a little tired, so please forgive my lack of blog.
