But will pearl be able to do it?

Lily is eleven years old, and lives with her mum and siblings, Bliss, Baxter and Pixie. One day her mum is invited to Spain for a holiday by her new boyfriend Gordon, and accepts, leaving the four children home alone. Lily tries her best to care for her brother and sisters, feeding them whatever is in the cupboard- in other words, ice cream, biscuits and more ice cream. It isn’t long until someone finds out that they are alone and not at school, and Lily and her siblings have to escape to the park, where they sleep in a hollow tree. At one point they can’t find their tree, and have to eat scraps from a cafe until they find it again. Just when Lily does have things under control, an accident occurs, and soon, everyone knows…
One thing that I didn’t like about this book is the mother. Before she leaves for Spain, she takes the children on a shopping trip, and she uses a credit card that she doesn’t own. And when she does return, she goes to court, and the children think that she hasn’t done anything wrong. I did enjoy the dialogue, and the way that the author makes the characters come alive. My favourite character is Lily, because she is so sensible. What I mean is, she is more sensible than her mum. I think that girls would like this book more, and I give it a 6 out of 10.
It’s a very wonderful book for girls ecspecially girls aged seven to eleven (well thats what the book said).
It’s an amazing life story about 3 girls and 2 boys, how their dad broke up with their mum on Christmas day and then their whole family gets miserable until next christmas when everyone turns their frowns upside down all just because of a little single knock at the door.

Violet is inspired by Casper Dream because he writes and draws about fairies. She once wrote to Casper Dream and he replied. But when she wrote to him again it said there is no such address. So she wrote to him every day and kept in a silver box hidden in the back of the cupboard.
Violet has no proper friends at all. At the moment she is friends with two bossy know-it-all-Marnie and Terry. But one day at school a new girl named Jasmin joined the school. Can Violet be friends with this new kid?
But every afternoon she would go to vist the Mulberry Tree. She remebered when her mum baked a pie for her and her dad to eat.

Hot off the press and ready for the Christmas gift giving comes The Longest Whale Song. Ellas life isn’t going so great. She doesn’t like her grumpy step-dad, baby Sam cries all the time and her best friend wants to be friends with Dory. The worst, worst, worst thing of all is that her mum is in hospital in a coma.
Ellas school project on Whales helps Ella discover that Whales sing to each other underwater and lots of other amazing things about them. Could a whale song help them get through to her mum?
This is yet another very readable book by Jacqueline. Ella does alot of growing up in this book and a number of her relationships with people change. She even makes a new friend. The medical stuff about Ellas mum can be quite difficult to read so I’m recommending this for intermediate aged kids 11 to 13.
