Product Description

Lizzie refuses to speak. It’s as if she has a zip across her mouth. She doesn’t want to talk to anyone… and most definitely not her new stepbrothers and stepdad. Nothing can coax her into speaking to them: not football, not pizza, not even a new bedroom. But one day, a member of her new family turns out to be even more stubborn than Lizzie is. Is the zip across her mouth about to be pulled open at last?

Jacqueline Wilson

24424 jacqueline wilson 1 206738

Jacqueline Wilson was born in Bath in 1945, but spent most of her childhood in Kingston-on-Thames. She always wanted to be a writer and wrote her first “novel” when she was nine, filling countless Woolworths’ exercise books as she grew up. Since having her daughter, Emma, she has been writing full time.

Her insightful and emotionally challenging books not only stretch reading ability, but give young readers a glimpse into many kinds of lives. Smart girls, strong girls, bad girls, brave girls. Girls keeping their families going, girls trying to get away… Jacqueline Wilson’s written about them all! These powerful stories of plucky girls in difficult circumstances won’t fail to strike a chord.

She has written over 70 best-selling books, and several have even been adapted for TV – most famously The Story of Tracy Beaker. Her signing sessions attract huge crowds of fans and last for hours! Over 25 million copies of her books have now been sold in the UK alone.

In 2007 Jacky Daydream was published, an inspirational true story of how a shy schoolgirl became a superstar author. This was followed by My Secret Diary, a captivating account of Jacky’s teenage years.

In June 2002 Jacqueline was given an OBE for services to literacy in schools, and she was the Children’s Laureate from 2005-2007. She also became a Dame in December 2007.

    this is my favourite book because it is funny and dramatic but even though the book is small it is a very good book and sometimes big things come in small packages!

    I think this book is truly amazing because it tells people that even if you’re scared, worried and don’t like someone you can still speak and not keep your mouth zipped at all times. when I heard the song little me by little mix I realized the chorus relates to this book: I’d tell her to speak up, tell her to shout out, Talk a bit louder, be a bit prouder, Tell her she’s beautiful, wonderful, Everything she doesn’t see,

    You gotta speak up, you gotta shout out,
    And know that right here, right now,
    You can be beautiful, wonderful,
    Anything you wanna be,
    little me. I think its tell lizzie to speak up and know she can talk no matter how she feels. I think that songs  kind of telling everyone a message. I'm not making any of this up so,                      READ IT!

    This book shows the purpose of how another character would feel if they would of been hurt or disobeyed, however Lizzie is trying to get her mums attention to her and try to tell her that she might not fit on their family very well.

    A shorter book, but still quite good. Would probably be more enjoyed by younger readers, but older readers might enjoy it as a small. short read.

    This book is short and sweet but still an amazing book by Jacqueline Wilson! It’s quite funny but sad as well. This book has been written well and is not too long either, I would say that it is the right length for the story. I would say that this book is for younger readers. Enjoy! X

    I thought lizzie zipmouth was one of the best books in the world when i read it, because I’d never seen anything like it. Now, when I look back, I think even at 14, I’d still enjoy it just as much! Great book, I advise eveyone to give it a read.
