A Kid's Review on 10 Feb. 2009
Format: Hardcover
I'm a ten year old girl reading Jacqueline Wilson's books. She is my favourite author and I've read nearly all her books. This book can be very emotional at times and be very funny too! I'd recommend this book for people 8+. This is my favourite Jacqueline Wilson book and I can't wait for her next one. I couldn't put it down! Its one of those books you get addicted to. If you like Cookie then I'd recommend My Sister Jodie and Candyfloss. So if I were you I'd get it!!

Well, I first read this book after loaning it from my school's library, and I was rather taken with it~so much so that I read it twice in a matter of days. It was undoubtedly one of my favourite books, after all of the Harry Potter series and one or two of Jacqueline W.'s other numbers. In fact, I liked it so much I wanted to read it again on meh Kindle. Now, time to get down to the nitty~gritty...
*Warning ~ spoilers!*

The Good...
I liked how poor Beauty was portrayed, quivering under the thumb of her horrible father along with her caring mother (who pleasantly surprised me by turning out quite good but often a bit irritatingly dim (see my little niggles below)) and also how the house was described ~ I could picture it in my mind as I read! Sam sounds lovely, as does Lily, but the idea of a twelve year old watching a kid's program is kinda weird *let us conveniently forget that time I watched Chuggington then*...
I did really like the character of Mike and the whole seaside part was blissful, albeit very unrealistic.

The Bad...
By the way, these are all rather minor and tedious but they annoyed me somewhat. Beauty's mum, I found, was a bit stupid and let her daughter take over far far far too much. Does this happen in real life? Probably not as much as JW thinks it does. Also, Skye seems to be miraculously similar to some other mean~girl stereotypes in JW's books... Rhiannon from Candlyfloss, Chloe from Sleepovers, and I am very sure there are more that I cannot remember or haven't read yet. Hmm...
Birthday. Poor little Birthday. Why did you die so young? I was nearly in tears when that sweet little rabbit died and believe me I do not cry over books often. Gerry was so horrible to do that to his own daughter!

A Kid's Review on 14 Dec. 2008
Format: Hardcover
Cookie is a great book. Its about a girl called Beauty and she is not the prettiest girl. Skye is a mean person at school and makes up new nicknames for her nearly everyday. For example, Ugly, Wobblybum, Curlynob, Snotty-Swotty and a lot of other things. But apart from the teasing at school, Beauty is also having trouble at home with her dad. He always goes in a rant with Beauty and her mum. So they move to a beach called Rabbit Cove.They have a wonderful time with an artist called Mark. Could this change Beauty's life completely?

This book tells the story of a girl named Beauty Cookson, who unfortunately isn't very beautiful at all. The girls at her school are all mean to her as her shy, distant personality makes her an easy target. She lives with her mum and her agressive dad; who is constantly firing abuse at poor Beauty. Beauty's mum tries to invent a new nickname for her beloved daughter, by making Cookies. She thinks this will encourage the other girls at school to call beauty 'Cookie.' When Beauty and her mum's life becomes a living hell at the hands of beauty's dad, they decided to start a new life togther elsewhere.

I thought this was a good easy read. I could easily sink my nose into this book and wouldn't get bored; however, at the same time this book hasn't got a very exciting storyline, and I wouldn't recommend it to those wanting a thrill read.
This book is sutiable for ages 8+. Being 13, I quickly and easily read my way through this book. I recommend it to girls who enjoy reading, and others who love Jacqueline Wilson's work.

The moment I finished this book I wanted more. Jacqueline Wilson is amazing. How can anyone meet Michael Morpourgo standards other than Hillary McKay! This is a must read for 10-12 year olds.

WARNING-:; If you like Jaqueline Wilson, try not to stop reading her books for a long time as you will get bored of her the moment your head goes in the book.

This book is about a girl called Beauty Mercedes Cookson. She gets bullied a lot by the girls at school because of her name. She eventually makes a semi-friend called Rhona. However her best friend is Beauty' s arch nemisis.

This is an amazing book for people who like Lola rose.

!!!!!!!!*****SPOILERS!!!!!!!!!*********

Beauty eventually gets a dream come true. It has something to do with a white bunny, a telly presenter. And if your like me you'll guess exactly what this ending is.

this book is amazing! it is a really good read. jacqueline wilson is a creative and imaginative author. she creates this character named Beauty Cookson which i think is a fun character but i feel really sorry for her because she is bullied at school by some snobby, bragful girls and she is also insulted by her dad all the time as her dad is often moody. but she is happy in her life because she has a new best friend and she gets to meet her favourite tv show stars. it is quite sad that she with her mum leaves dad. but beauty deserves to be happy not picked on. I just hate her dads pesonality and the bully named Skye who is so snobby, spiteful, nasty and bragful towards her. but these characters are very imaginative created by jackie therefore the bok gives us an account of what goes on in Beautys world or life whatever u call it. will definitely read in future. xxx
