Product description

Amazon Review

Jacqueline Wilson's The Bed and Breakfast Star is read here in unabridged form by Josie Lawrence. Wilson is in fine form in this funny and moving story of a little girl who copes with her none-too-glamorous life by telling endless jokes and fantasising about being a comedian. As things go from bad to worse and Elsa and her family find themselves homeless, they have to move into the very un-regal Royal Hotel. But when disaster strikes at the hotel, Elsa gets her chance to be a real star.

Jacqueline Wilson lets the reader eavesdrop on Elsa's life, encouraging an intelligent understanding of her situation but never once suggesting that there might be a magic solution. Instead of letting pity in on the act, Wilson treats us to a realistic and sobering yet smart and entertaining story of a child doing the best she can in an unforgiving world where things are never really as they should be. The story is presented on three cassettes. --Susan Harrison --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

Review

"Funny and very moving" (Josie Lawrence Daily Express)

"An unsentimental and truthful book that is even better for a strong sense of mischief" (Independent on Sunday)

"The chatty style draws young readers straight into the story, and the constant stream of corny jokes masks, but does not conceal, the deeper issues" (Daily Telegraph)

"This is an hilarious and at the same time exceptionally emotional story" (Scribbler)
