Fantastic author-illustrator team Jacqueline Wilson and Nick Sharratt have been telling the stories based on their most famous character Tracy Beaker for 27 years. And now the feisty girl from a care home is a mum herself, to nine-year-old Jess – and Nick and Jacqueline have written more than 50 books together, selling 40 million copies around the world.

We are absolutely delighted that for the first time, both Nick and Jacqueline are appearing on stage at Bournville BookFest! Learn to draw their characters and find out how brilliant ideas are turned into books, at this unmissable BookFest highlight. This event is perfect for children aged 7-12 (not 5+ as in the printed programme).

This show will be sign language interpreted.

Don't forget! No children are allowed to events unaccompanied by an adult, and everyone who attends needs a ticket - it's just like going to the cinema!

Please note that only Nick Sharratt will be signing books afterwards, so we will be supplying bookplate stickers signed by both Nick and Jacqueline at the festival bookshop.
