Dolphin adores her mother: she’s got wonderful clothes, bright hair and vivid tattoos all over her body. She definitely lives a colourful life. Dolphin’s older sister, Star, also loves her but is beginning to wonder if staying with a mum whose temper can be as flashy as her body-art is the best thing for the girls.
‘”It’s like you’re the mum” Marigold wept.
It was another game she sometimes liked to play. I decided it was my best chance of getting us home.’

She’s not like the other mums.
She has vivid tattoos all over her body, bright hair and wonderful clothes.

As much as the girls love Marigold, is she the right person to be looking after them?
Jacqueline Wilson’s classic children’s story is an optimistic, heart breaking tale about family, mental health and strong sisterly love.
