Author(s): PULMAN, FELICITY
Maggie is working as a children's nurse in the big house when she finds a copybook and decides to teach herself to read. She knows she shouldn't really take the book, and things only get worse when the mistress sends her home in disgrace. Felicity Pulman's story will give children a fascinating glimpse into how different life would have been on a property in New South Wales in the nineteenth century.
