About this book
Jacqueline Wilson's first historical novel for children now comes in paperback. Hetty Feather is something of a Victorian Tracy Beaker; left at a Foundling Hospital and in search of a mother she knows one day will find her again. And, through lots of hardship and adventures for Hetty, she does! Ages: 8+
It's London, 1876 and Hetty Feather is just a tiny baby when her mother leaves her at the Foundling Hospital. The Hospital cares for abandoned children - but Hetty must first live with a foster family until she is big enough to go to school. Life in the countryside is hard but with her 'brothers' Jem and Gideon, she plays imaginary games.
