Jackie is a prolific writer who has shown great flexibility with her books coming from a wide variety of styles and genre including: picture story books, historic novels and fiction novels.


 

Don't forget library bags are needed to borrow books from the library. All returns come to school via the bus run on a Friday and will be returned that afternoon.
