This year Jacqueline Wilson will publish her 100th book! So to celebrate we’ve put together a jam-packed Puffin Virtually Live webcast – which will be streamed 100 days before it’s published! Hosted by former Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton, Jacqueline Wilson will be live on stage, beaming into classrooms all around the world.

As well as Jacqueline herself there’ll be special guest appearances from the illustrator Nick Sharratt and Phoebe Thomas, the actress who plays Hetty Feather in the stage show which is coming soon to London’s West End.

Learn all about Jacqueline Wilson’s life and discover her top tips for wannabe-writers. With live Q&As, brand new videos, quizzes, a draw-along and the first ever reading from her 100th book there’s loads to keep classes of boys and girls aged 8 - 12 entertained.

All sounds pretty exciting – doesn’t it? Full details below – register your school for the show now to get all the latest updates and prepare for the big day.
