An evening with Jacqueline Wilson at Polka Theatre, Wimbledon

Join us for what promises to be a brilliant event with award-winning and bestselling author, Jacqueline Wilson at the Polka Theatre in Wimbledon. Jacqueline will be talking about her career and new book, The Girl Who Wasn’t There, and there will also be an opportunity for children to ask questions.

In this glorious, thrilling tale from the much-loved Jacqueline Wilson, two sisters encounter a tower with a forbidden room at the top and find their lives filled with curious, magical goings-on.  

'And we're going to live here, happily ever after, just like a fairy tale.'

When Dad tells Luna and her little sister Aurora that they're moving to live in a real tower, it's almost like they've stepped inside a fairytale. But everything is not as magical as it first seems. The tower needs patching up, Dad still doesn't have a job and they're not even allowed in the room up at the very top. When it's time to start at their new school, Luna quickly finds a friend, but six-year-old Aurora absolutely hates the children in her class. She prefers to spend her time with her imaginary friend Tansy. Aurora's make-belief life causes problems for them all - and it seems like Aurora really believes Tansy exists.

Jacqueline Wilson will be signing copies of the The Girl Who Wasn’t There after the event, but due to time limitations Jacqueline will only be able to sign a maximum of one copy of The Girl Who Wasn’t There per child.
