Ideal for readers who enjoyed books like Journey to the River Sea or Tom’s Midnight Garden.
On the search for books to recommend to my class of year 5 and 6 pupils, I listened to this book. The performance was great, the story well crafted, if a little predictable. I think good readers in year 4 and older readers in y5 and y6 who enjoy period stories like Journey to the River Sea and Tom’s Midnight Garden will enjoy this. I think girls might enjoy it more as the central character is a girl and an important backdrop to the story is the issue of gender inequality of opportunity in Victorian/Edwardian eras.
