5.0 out of 5 stars I couldn't put it down 3 Feb 2013
By Soffia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Queenie is an amazing novel by Jacqueline Wilson - I couldn't put it down. The story is narrated by Elsie Kettle, and Elsie lives with her Nan. When Elsie's Nan gets TB she has to go into hospital, and Elsie's Mum comes to look after her. But then Elsie herself starts to limp, and when they go to the doctor they find out that she has got TB of the leg. Elsie has to go to hospital and she tells lots of stories to all the other children, and she becomes friends with a nurse called nurse Gabriel. The ward also has a cat called Queenie, and every night Queenie climbs up onto Elsie's bed and she pretends that Queenie can talk. Elsie and her Nan wanted to go and see the coronation, but instead Sir David orders televisions for each ward. What I liked best about this book was the way it was narrated: I feel like I know Elsie very well. I would like Elsie for a friend.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!!!!!!<3 5 Sep 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is AMAZING! It makes you feel sad, frustrated, happy. At some parts you feel that you are Elsie! Best book I've read so far! I recommend it to anyone.( oh and by the way unabashedly your book report is Lies! Maybe you don't like her books cause you don't really want to enjoy them, it isn't just about bullies and boys shoes and she's scared of the dark) Best books ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Best book so far! 1 Feb 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
(Written by 9- year old daughter): This book is the best Jacqueline Wilson book I have read on kindle and book.The basic idea is that the main character,Elsie,really wants to see the 1952 Coronation but she gets ill.She has to go to hospital and misses the coronation.She is really disappointed.But she gets a nice surprise.The cover shows Elsie and the hospital's cat,Queenie.At the end of the book,Elsie adopts one of her kittens and calls it Princess.I definitely love this book and I would recommend it to all Jacqueline Wilson fans.This book is excellent and I really want a sequel to come out.I also think this book is ideal for children who want to have a go at reading these books.I started reading this the day that it came out and I was so attached that I couldn't turn my kindle off until bedtime and I finished it the day after.The best bit is that the description is so good I thought I was part of the story and I could see everything.This is the best Jacqueline Wilson book ever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Queenie 26 Aug 2013

I really enjoyed this book because it had a very unusual storyline. I felt sorry for Elsie because her mum didn't really care about her and her Nan was very ill. I'm glad she had a happy ending.
