Home Jacqueline Wilson The Story of Tracy Beaker. The Story of Tracy Beaker, . Elaine, my stupid old social worker, was sitting beside me when I started writing THE STORY OF TRACY BEAKER and I got the giggles making up my brilliant curses for Auntie Peggy, and Elaine looked surprised and said, What are you laughing at, Tracy? I said, Mind your own business, and she said, Now, Tracy, and then she looked at what I'd written, which is a bit rude, seeing as it's supposed to be very private. She sighed when she got to the Auntie Peggy part and said, Really, Tracy! and I said, Yes, really, Elaine.

This book is the first book in the Tracy Beaker series and it is really funny. It had me laughing out loud. I chose it because I liked the television series and Jacqueline Wilson is a favourite author of mine.

Jacqueline Wilson, Nick Sharratt. This is a book all about me. I'd read it if I were you. It's the most incredible dynamic heart-rending story. Tracy is ten years old. She lives in a Children's Home but would like a real home one day, with a real family.

Wilson is an only child but always wanted to have lots of children, to become an earth mother, but she, her grandmother, mother and her daughter Emma are all only children. She published 40 books before Tracy, and is grateful that things didn’t really take off until Emma, now a Cambridge academic and author, was older. For years, she would write a strict 1,000 words a day, after swimming 50 lengths in the local pool, but she has decided to be kinder to myself, aiming for between 500 and 800 words, in bed each morning.

As a child I loved reading Jacqueline Wilson books in particular "Tracy Beaker" which had been a personal favourite of mine. Her stories portray real-life unfortunate scenarios in what some children experience in their lives. She goes in to detail of how they live, expressing their feelings, the challenges they come across and what happens to them in later life. I particularly like the illustrations of Tracy's letters to Cam, and the way Sharratt draws us in using his drawings.

It's the most incredible dynamic heart-rending story. Did you enjoy reading this fantastic book when you were a child?

One of Jacqueline’s most successful and enduring creations has been the famous Tracy Beaker, who first appeared in 1991 in The Story of Tracy Beaker. This was also the first of her books to be illustrated by Nick Sharratt. The CBBC series about Tracy Beaker has been an enormous success and brought a new audience to the books. Since Tracy’s first appearance, Jacqueline has been on countless award shortlists and has gone on to win many of them

Jacqueline's books include The Story of Tracy Beaker, which has become a hugely successful BBC TV series . All of Jacqueline Wilson books are really good and funny, they're so good that I finish an entire book in under 24 hours. Destiny, England, 13 November 2015.

Jacqueline's books include The Story of Tracy Beaker, which has become a hugely successful BBC TV series; Girls in Love, which together with its two sequels was filmed for ITV television; and Double Act, which she adapted for Channel 4 and which won the Royal TV Society's Best Children's Fiction Award. As the fourth Children's Laureate (2005-2007) she promoted the importance of sharing books, and reading aloud together.

Introducing Tracy Beaker, 10-year-old girl-wonder and the daughter of a famous Hollywood actress . . . sort of. Tracy Beaker’s not exactly sure what her mother does, because Tracy has been in foster care for as long as she can remember. She has a picture of her mother, who’s pretty enough to be in movies, so maybe she is. And maybe one day Tracy’s mother will show up and reclaim her long-lost daughter, and together they’ll have fabulous adventures. Then again, maybe she won’t. In the meantime, Tracy’s doing everything she can to take care of herself–even though she has to share her birthday cake with silly Petey Ingham just because they have the same birthday . . . and even though the other girls she lives with are mean and nasty and rude and horrible. Mostly. Then a journalist shows up to write a story about their orphanage, and she and Tracy strike up a special friendship. In a story written with humor and sensitivity, Tracy emerges as a spirited girl who’s not quite as tough as she lets everybody think she is.

It was funny and care and creative . I really enjoyed it. I only started reading because I just moved to England from Florida and I wanted to watch some of the TV shows and I scrolled onto Tracy Beaker and my favourite episode is : I'm not in LOVE! Jacqueline Wilson is amazing! And guess who Tracy's first kiss was named Wilson. Do you see where they relate.

I love this book! It is an amazing book I think because It describes real life the bad things and the good things of living without a family. Even if you hate you enemy you feel bad if he does not feel well! I recommend this book to everyone who likes a bit of romance, naughty little girls and having fun!

While I was in the library, walking down the various aisles, I saw this book, and thought that it was a little strange for a children's book. Curious as to what the story was about, I decided to take it. Once I started reading it, I just couldn't put this book down. I finished reading it entirely in one sitting. It is one of the best books that I feel I have read recently.

Tracy Beaker is a young girl who lives in a children's home. She tells us a little about her likes, dislikes, and other aspects of her personality before the story starts. She hopes that her mother (who Tracy says is famous actress) will come one day and pick her up, and will share her adventures with Tracy. Until then, she decides to spend her time by writing her autobiography (which is what this book is all about). She writes down her bad experiences in the foster homes that she lived in, her rivalry with Justine Littlewood, and her silly friendship with Peter Ingham, among other things.

Jacqueline Wilson did a wonderful job in writing this book. Since this is the first book that I had read of hers, I feel tempted to read her other works. She portrays the life of Tracy in different angles, and tells the story in such a humorous way that it just draws the readers and makes them feel for the character. Nick Sharratt drew cute illustrations that went well with the story. What made me enjoy this book more was the fact that it was told in a realistic way. It doesn't have the typical happy ending, but you feel satisfied and happy for Tracy in the end anyway. The language is simple, but I wouldn't advice children below 8 to read this book, as it contains quite a bit of profanity.

"The story of Tracy Beaker" is funny, emotional, and told in a unique way, and I would recommend anyone, adult or child, to pick up a copy and read it.

Review by YMP, age 11:

This is another winner from Jacqueline Wilson. It is a wonderful story about a child named Tracy Beaker who has spent almost her whole life in Children's Care. Even if you haven't been in foster care before, you can relate to her experiences. She has troubles just like everybody(Read: Peter Ingham, a weedy little kid who thinks she is his friend just because they share a birthday, and Justine Littlewood, a nasty snitch who is mean to everybody except Tracy's ex-best friend) but not quite like everybody. The characters are well thought out and the ending, where you don't know if Cam will adopt her yet, leaves you asking for more. This book is good for adults who like a short, funny story or kids who like books about other kids (basically every kid). Myself, I didn't half like it.If you liked this book, try reading The Suitcase Kid, also by Jacqueline Wilson.I have only given it 4 stars, because Americans and Canadians might find it hard to get used to Tracy's British vocabulary.

I would rate it that because it just ended. It didn't really have such a good ending. All the Jacqueline Wilson books I've read did the same thing. It just ended. Otherwise it was a really good book. The book makes you never want to stop reading. It is really exciting and fun to read. I really like The Story Of Tracy Beaker. My favorite (or FAVOURITE) character is Tracy. Tracy is my favorite character because she reminds me of my friend Louisa. She reminds me of my friend Louisa because they both can be really stubborn sometimes and they are both be really fun. I mean I don't know Tracy is fun because I haven't met her but she seems fun. I would recommend it to all the girls in our class. I don't think the boys would like it so much.

This book is fun and very easy to read and a little bit sad at the same time. It's the story of a girl named Tracy who hates almost everybody around her, but she really loves her mom and wishes she would come pick her up from the children's home. She likes to think her mom is a Hollywood star. Tracy thinks she is the smartest girl and she's a little bit self-centered (I think you'll understand this from the book cover!). After she meets Cam, she starts to like other people.

I recommend this book for ages...I think any age will enjoy it!

tracy beaker is my fantasy book of my whole childhood starting from 5 years old,im 10 now and just cant stop reading it.Im going to give it five stars because it has loads of exiting words and the text is smashing.i cant seem too work out though why the author sometimes puts in words and they says the oppisitething for example she writes tracy beaker likes dogs and then she dont.

I admire jaqueline willsons books especially tracy beaker.I bet im a number 1 fan and the reason why is all i ever do is either sit down and read tracy beaker or sit on my inflatable sofa and look on the internet and read other peoples reviews on tracy beaker.

This book is about a girl whose mum does not want her. It makes you think about how life is for children whose lives aren't as happy as your own. But the book has lots of happy parts too - the lady Tracy goes to live with is kind and they do fun things together. And there is at least one big surprise in the book. Tracy is an interesting mix of kind and cruel. As with all the Jacqueline Wilson books, I couldn't put this one down.
