Ellen, aged 9, thinks this...

My favourite character in Candyfloss was Floss because she was the main character. I would recommend Candyfloss to all my friends because I love all of the Jacqueline Wilson books.

Melissa, aged nine, thinks this...

I read Candyfloss when it came out in the shops because Jacqueline Wilson is my favourite author. Floss is upset because her mum, her mum's boyfriend and her baby brother are moving to Australia. Floss wants to stay behind and live with her Dad, who owns a café. She also has to cope with the fact that she doesn't like her friend and wants a new one called Susan.

I would recommend Candyfloss to all people who haven't read it yet because it is a book that features comedy, sadness and happiness all at the one time and as always Jacqueline has wrote a fab book.

Emily, aged eight, thinks this...

It was rubbish. She should have made the baby brother a baby sister. It would of been more fun.

Molly, aged eight, thinks this...

When I went on holiday I read Candyfloss seven times. It's sad at times but it ends happily. Floss is brave and she made the right choice to stay with her Dad in the book because all those good things happened to her. I read it so much that my Mum wouldn't let me read it any more!

Natasha, aged ten, thinks this...

I LOVED this book. You can see I'm a fan of Jacqueline Wilson. The book is about a girl called Florence and people call her Flossie for short... her mum's got this new boyfriend Steve and she hates him. She finds out that they're going to Australia. She doesn't want to go 'cause she'll miss her dad too much. So she stays behind with her dad at the café. Soon her dad gets caught up with major money problems. Read the book to see if their new fairground friends could help them out.

Rachel, aged nine, thinks this...

I loved the book. I think you can tell every emotion floss has. She was so right to stop being friends with Rhianna. I recommend this book to everyone. I love all Jacqueline Wilson's books, so do my friends and I have a huge club (we're reading all her books). I am a slow reader but still I don't let that get in the way and when I get going on one of Candyfloss's pages I can't stop. I love the book and everybody will.

Amelia, aged seven, thinks this...

I think it is a good book but isn't as good as Tracy Beaker! I loved the pictures. Also I liked it because I lived in Sydney until I was four!
Oh and my step-brother's (who lives in Australia) nickname is Tiger!

Danielle, aged ten, thinks this...

I really liked the book at first but then when I got nearer to the end of the book it got quite boring. I thought it was OK though.

Emma, aged ten, thinks this...

I didn't like the Candyfloss book because Jacqueline Wilson's writing always puts a downer on life. I read this because I thought it might have been a bit different from Tracy Beaker and stories like Vicky Angel, which are both sad and have quite depressing subjects. I was disappointed.

It is good for the first time you read it but after that zzzzzzzzzzzzz!
