About this deal

In 2007 Jacky Daydream was published, an inspirational true story of how a shy schoolgirl became a superstar author. Nick Sharratt has created illustrations for over two hundred and fifty books during his illustrious career. The birthday starts to become unbearable when, at the show, Beauty is too shy to go onstage (the show is to celebrate people's birthdays), and he shouts at her in the limousine as well as ruining her cookies. I did really like the character of Mike and the whole seaside part was blissful, albeit very unrealistic. Rhiannon from Candlyfloss, Chloe from Sleepovers, and I am very sure there are more that I cannot remember or haven't read yet.

At the school she makes friends and is nicknamed the Cookie Girl, but she still keeps in touch with Rhona by writing letters. The moral of this book is to keep going, even when you find things hard, and to embrace your inner child - Beauty's love for Rabbit Hutch - a fictional TV show made for ages 3-6. Domestic abuse is hard to read about, but it's so worth it by the end and it's definitely one of the happiest ever afters JW's written!

Sharratt's trademark illustrations lend their own kind of comfort by giving a quick graphic preview of what's to come in each chapter.

The Illustrated Mum won the Guardian Children’s Fiction Award, the 1999 Children’s Book of the Year at the British Book Awards and was also shortlisted for the 1999 Whitbread Children’s Book Award. For the birthday party, Gerry forces her to get corkscrew curls, and popular bullies Skye, Arabella and Emily develop a new nickname for her: Ugly Corkscrew.However, Rhona desperately wants to be friends with Beauty, which she reveals one day when Skye is at a dentist appointment.
