A great read from a bright new talent -- Guardian
Roald Dahl meets Jacqueline Wilson -- Financial Times
Jessica, true to form, is still concentrating on her plans to win the Nobel Prize for Science - this time though she is trying a different tack - planning on making herself a TV star by presenting her own science show! At present though the TV companies aren't showing much interest. To distract Jessica from this problem is a feud that is growing up between her mother (still practising as a witch) and a newcomer to the area who is threatening serious competition as a rival magical practitioner. Knowing Jessica's mother, fireworks are sure to explode!

'A great read from a bright new talent.' - "The Guardian". 'gives the standard domestic magical comedy some bright twists' - "Times".See all Product description

This book is well-written; it is exciting with enthralling dialogue that covers a number of important subjects; `Media Star' is action packed from cover to cover and never lost me attention all the way through. I loved it and would think that the book would probably fascinate the 9-13 age range.
I liked it when jessica's Dad grew some tomatoes in the greenhouse. I liked one of the person's in the story called Robbie Flotsam and he was at jessica's school. Then in one part of the story when they had a bonfire outside. I thought that the
idea of being a professional witch is quite a bad idea. Then jeessica and her Dad thought that it was a very bad idea as well. Then they started to argue for a while. Then near the end jessica's Mum finally stoped the silly witch business and at last they were a happy family.
