I met Jacqueline Wilson

Jacqueline meeting author, Jacqueline Wilson

Press Packer Jacqueline went to the Bath Festival of Children's Literature and met a very famous author.

Here's her story.

"I saw Jacqueline Wilson speak at a children's literature festival.

I then waited in line for two hours to get a book signed.


Many people wanted to see her and the audience filled the biggest hall in Bath to hear her speak.

First of all she talked about herself and her books.

Then she said that she didn't normally base any of the characters on herself but Jenna Williams in Clean Break was based on her.

The next person I heard talk was Geraldine McCaughrean who wrote Peter Pan in Scarlet, the official sequel to Peter Pan by JM Barrie.

She introduced herself and then she started talking.

She called a girl up out of the audience, gave her a script and got her to put on a waistcoat.

Then they started acting out a scene from the book Peter Pan in Scarlet.

The girl was very good and she got a big applause at the end.

At the end when we filed out of the hall we all rushed to the book table.

I bought two books called White Darkness and History Tales."

Jacqueline, 11, Birmingham
