Asking for help when dealing with mental health problems big enough that you had to be institutionalised and separated from your children for a while is a good thing to represent in children's lit! I've been reading Jacqueline Wilson's books since I was a child and I think this one is just a teeny bit lacking than her other books. What I am certain and adamant about is that Mab shouldn't have to act like an adult and take care of her out of anxiety. A magical, captivating story about fairies, families and friendship from the brilliant, award-winning Jacqueline Wilson. Not sure if it was just because it was a different style, with the move into fantasy, but it seemed less emotionally in depth and without the same really engaging world building I love with J.

Before the start of the book, she had a breakdown after Mab's dad left them, and it caused Mab and her little brother Robin to be put into care, and a foster home for a bit. The fantasy element was equally lovely, with that typical Victorian twist present in all my favourite JW books. The care system is portrayed with little distaste, and don't try to tear the family apart, but put them back together again. I've read all her new books and absolutely adore Rachael Dean's illustrations, and this was no different for me. I was lucky enough to meet Jacqueline at an event earlier in the month and managed to get a signed copy of her new book Project Fairy.The illustrations are more diverse than I've seen in a JW book for a long time, which was also so nice to see. Although this initially put me off the novel, I still enjoyed the expected elements Jacqueline portrays in her texts, hard subject matter and topics made understandable and relatable for children. Jacqueline is also a great reader, and has amassed over 20,000 books, along with her famous collection of silver rings.

She reads it with her mum and her little brother Robin, and she’s surprised to see the drawings inside are nothing like the sweet fairies she imagined. bit upset that nick sharratt isn’t doing the illustrations anymore, but i did love this art style too!I kind of wish there was a mention, like a suggestion, of whether Mum was taking any kind of medication, any antidepressants, however. As well as winning many awards for her books, including the Children's Book of the Year, Jacqueline is a former Children's Laureate, and in 2008 she was appointed a Dame. Their flat is full of fairy ornaments, tiny fairy furniture and they’ve even got fairy lights in the toilet.

Then and there, they realise that their father didn’t deserve them and their peaceful, cosy warm lives. and definitely the kind of book I would have loved to read as a child, filled with fairy magic and history and all the heartache and family angst you'd expect from JW.As well as winning many awards for her books, including the Children’s Book of the Year, Jacqueline is a former Children’s Laureate, and in 2008 she was appointed a Dame.
