Jacqueline Wilson covers all the delicate issues that girls AND boys will come cross in life at some stage. I think the problem is, most people associate her with Tracey Beaker, which I suppose is mainly a girlie programme. I think its great and lets face it, the fact that he is reading at all is a bonus!!

I would be delighted if my DS (in the future - he's only 2.11) read JW. Tell the family member to naff off.

He has good taste. DD used to wonder why I stopped reading out loud to her in several JW books - it was due to the lump in my throat. She now reads them herself.

She picks them out in 2nd hand bookshops - but often finds the first editions. I send her back until she finds the paperback version at a fifth of the cost.
