Jacqueline Wilson, she is one of my favorite children's authors. It's been so long since I read her books. I like both of the story and its illustration.
After Tracy Beaker, now she has another series. I hope Gramedia Pustaka Utama will also buy the rights of this book and translate it. So I get the chance to read it. :)
From the newsletter that I received, this book will be released on September 29th.
