About this book
Katherine Rundell's beautiful 2nd novel, about a group of urchins living on the rooftops of Victorian Paris. Think "Mary Poppins" meets "A Little Princess" reinvigorated for a contemporary readership.
Charles, a fellow survivor and an eccentric scholar, finds Sophie and brings her home to his London bachelor flat. Raised in a quirky home filled with music, words and love (though questionable diet), Sophie grows into a free-spirited tomboy with a taste for Shakespeare and the unshakeable belief that anything is possible.
