Jacqueline Wilson's favourite children's book reissued as a beautiful Vintage Children's Classic
Betty MacDonald was born Anne Elizabeth Campbell Bard in Boulder, Colorado, in 1908. The daughter of an engineer, she spent her early years in the mining towns of Idaho, Montana and Mexico. When she was nine, her father took the family - his wife and five children - to Seattle, where Betty lived until shortly after her marriage. Among her books for children are Nancy and Plum, first published in 1952, and the popular American classic series Mrs Piggle-Wiggle.
"It's a story about two sisters who run away from an orphanage and for young girls, it has everything going for it. There are wonderful descriptions of clothes, dolls and girls' friendships and an adventure. It was my favourite book when I was that age, too" -- Jacqueline Wilson * Independent * "This tale of a marvellous year in the lives of two small waifs will charm readers old and young" * New Yorker * "Marvellous" * Buffalo News * "Nancy and Plum are lovable characters whom readers will be drawn to" * School Library Journal * "A lovely, forgotten classic that deserves to be reprinted" -- Jacqueline Wilson * The Times *
