Book Description

1 Jun 2000
A short, sparky novel from our mega-selling star author, Jacqueline Wilson. Lizzie has zipped up her mouth. She’s totally fed up at having to join a new family and nothing can coax her into speaking to them. Not football, not pizza, not a new bedroom. That is, until she meets Great-Gran, who is even more stubborn than her – and has had a lot more practice!

Amazon Review

Lizzie refuses to speak. It's as if she has a zip across her mouth. She doesn't want to talk to anyone, especially her new stepbrothers and their dad. She certainly doesn't feel like talking to her mum. Then one day a member of her new family turns out to be even more stubborn than Lizzie, and things begin to change...

Jacqueline Wilson strikes hard, fast and funny in this deceptively simple story for young readers who are just beginning to build confidence in their reading skills. Her characters are strong and memorable, the writing superb and the storytelling captivating enough to lure the most reluctant of readers into the world of a young girl coming to terms with her parents' divorce and the advent of a new chapter in her life as a stepchild.

Lizzie Zipmouth is a mini masterpiece, and although aimed at younger readers can be enjoyed by any Wilson fan. And rest assured, if anyone can keep a child hooked, it is Jacqueline Wilson: be prepared to find yourself forking out for every book this extraordinary author has ever written. --Susan Harrison


" Hugely popular with seven to ten year olds: she should be prescribed for all cases of reading reluctance." -- "Independent on Sunday"

4.0 out of 5 stars A review of lizzy zipmouth 15 Sep 2007
Lizzie Zipmouth is a very exciting book about a girl who is at first very happy living with her mum, but then her mum started to go on dates. All the men her mum went on dates with were all very nasty.

But then, Lizzie's mum falls in love with a new man. He has two sons and lives in a big house. Lizzie has to move in with them and she hates it. Even though she is spoiled by her new step dad she still thinks that he will turn like all the others. So she decides to stop talking.

Then she gets introduced to the great grandma of her new family, who collects dolls and Lizzie loves dolls. She tries to persuade Lizzie to start talking by encouraging her to get some dolls out.

The great grandma becomes very ill and everyone was very sad and hoped she got better soon. Will Lizzie try to make her step dad happy and start to help the great grandma?

This book is written by Jacqueline Wilson and she is the best writer in the world. Well I think she is and I hope you do as well. I think that this book is very exciting and interesting. I love it, its great. If you are are a 10-15 year old girl, reading this book, I guarantee you would want to read it again.

This book scores 20 / 10 for me. My 10 year old has struggled to read and had dropped to below a reading age of 8. Asking her to read was like asking her to put her hand in a fire! Since reading this book, she has gone from Jacqueline Wilson to Jacqueline Wilson and from strength to strength. In 4 months her reading age has increased to 11.5! Thankyou Lizzie!

By A Customer
Lizzie's life is completely ruined by Rory and Jake (her new stepbrothers) and Sam, their dad. And Jake's not helping one bit. He's the one who gave Lizzie the stupid old nickname in the first place. Her life, it seems to Lizzie, will never be alright again-that is, until she meets Rory and Jake's Great Gran, who has a great interest in dolls, like Lizzie.
I think this a good book for ages 6-8. It is humorous and it is written in the first person. I'm a big fan of Jacqueline Wilson and I get inspiration for my drawing from Nick Sharratt.
