Wilson, Jacqueline  
Publisher: Delacorte Press, NY, 2005.
As New in As New dust jacket. First American Edition. First Printing. Hard Cover. ISBN: 0385732376 FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, FIRST PRINTING (Number Line: 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1). Hardcover with unclipped dust jacket. Quarter bound in publisher's purple cloth over blue boards, gilt (silver) lettering on spine. 8vo. This is a new, unopened copy. Both the volume and the dust jacket are in perfect, pristine condition. AS NEW/AS NEW. Anything written by Jacqueline Wilson is a pleasure to read. Her unique talent for dealing with difficult subjects without a trace of sentimentality, without patronizing either the reader or her characters, with spirit and with affection, always makes the arrival of a new book bearing her name a rewarding and emotionally satisfying experience. - Amazon. Co. Uk ReviewIn The Illustrated Mum, Wilson introduces us to Dolphin, a young girl living in the wake of her tattooed mother Marigold's manic depression. With her older sister, Star, on the brink of adulthood and facing the traumas of adolescence, and her mum sinking further and further into her illness, Dol has no-one to turn to when the constant bullying at school causes her to withdraw into her own world, and she begins to cope with the reality of her life by fantasizing that she is a witch. Far from being a depressing and overwhelming read, Wilson introduces her readers to another of her classic resourceful heroines who deals with the extraordinary circumstances of her life with a mixture of humor and quiet intelligence which blossoms as the situation reaches its inevitable climax. The Illustrated Mum is Jacqueline Wilson at her very best, introducing a difficult subject to young readers with a compassion that initiates an understanding of a very serious problem without condescension or scare tactics. - Susan Harrison A powerful novel of two sisters who have to cope with living in a very dysfunctional household where their tattoo-crazy mum has real difficulties in coping Dolphin adores her mother: she's got wonderful clothes, bright hair and vivid tattoos all over her body. Dolphin's sister, Star is beginning to wonder if staying with a mum whose temper can be as flashy as her body-art is the best thing for the girls. Star used to love Marigold, love me, love our life together. We three were the colorful ones, like the glowing pictures inked all over Marigold. Covered from head to foot with glorious tattoos, Marigold is the brightest, most beautiful mother in the world. That's what Dolphin thinks (she just wishes her beautiful mum wouldn't stay out partying all night or go weird now and then. ) Her older sister, Star, isn't so sure any more. She loves Marigold too, but sometimes she just can't help wishing she were more normal. A powerful and memorable tale for older readers (10 and up) . 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
