Product description

Jacky’s feisty Victorian heroine takes you back in time, from a foundling hospital to the circus ring. Be inspired. Love Tracy Beaker? Meet Hetty Feather – also stuck in a grotty children’s home. Abandoned as a tiny baby in 1876, Hetty has only ever known the foundling home’s tough rules and horrible food. When she’s sent to live in the country, things improve. She loves playing in the fields, and – best of all – the travelling circus. But just like Tracy Beaker, Hetty dreams of finding her real mum… Frilly but totally feisty: girls don’t come sassier than this plucky urchin of historical times.

    I loved this book, the whole Hetty Feather Trilogy is simply amazing, Its best to read these in order eg, Hetty Feather then Saphire Battersea and finally Emerald Star.

    Hetty Feather tells the reader about how bad the life at the foundling hospital was, it also tells the reader how hetty tried to be better than matron to get her own way.

    I think this is a really adventurous tale. There were times when it was so sad I cried but then other times when I loled(laughed out loud)! Overall this was a very fun book of many different chapters.
