I met Jacqueline Wilson!

Press Packer Rebecca met her favourite children's author, Jacqueline Wilson, at a book signing event.

She tells us about this once in a lifetime experience.


"I went to a book signing at Lakeside - a shopping centre in Essex. It was for Jacqueline Wilson's new book, Hetty Feather.

My friend Elena and her mum took me. We were both really excited.

As with any other book signing, there was a long queue. To pass the time we read the new book and also listened to music.

When it was my turn, I talked to Jacqueline and had my photo taken with her. The thought came to me that I was standing next to one of the greatest children's writers of all time!

Unforgettable

I told her that I had predicted what she was going to wear - a long, lacy, black dress. She also wore beautiful red leather high heels.

She was very friendly and signed my book.

I will never forget this once in a lifetime day! The new book was really good and I highly recommend it."

Rebecca, 12, Essex
