Publisher's Summary

"Where do baby apes sleep? In apricots! I'm Elsa, and that's one of my jokes (I tell LOTS of jokes and I'm going to be a big star one day). I do my best to cheer my family up - but no one seems to laugh much any more. Not since we lost our lovely house and had to move into a bed and breakfast hotel."When Elsa's stepfather loses his job, the family becomes homeless, and they are forced to move into the seedy Royal Hotel, where Elsa, her mum, stepdad Mack, little sister Pippa, and baby Hank the Hunk are all crammed together in one room. Everyone gets on each other's nerves, and to try and make her family laugh, Elsa cracks endless jokes. She dreams of being a famous comedian when she is older, and appearing on TV. But when disaster strikes at the hotel, Elsa gets her chance to be a real star...

Great for bed!

This book is great for before going to sleep: it is a simple story and if you do listen to it before bed, it doesn't mater if you fall to sleep you wont miss much.

Wow!!

Seriously - I don't give full marks lightly!


I'm an adult Jacqueline Wilson fan and LOVED this recording. Josie Lawrence is a genius with the narration, with so many different voices you could almost believe there is a whole cast reading it! A must have for all fans.
