I thought this book was great! We had it as a class book to read over the half term. At first, I had mixed feelings about this book but as I read the first page, I was completely hooked. The book is about a boy called Jim Jarvis (this book is set in Victorian times) who becomes homeless is then sent to the workhouse, and lves in different places. He meet new friends and has two sisters: Lizzie and Emily and his mother. I think this book was quite dark at the start but eventually becomes a happy ending.
Our Reading Den is a place for you and your child to discover and share books, find new authors and explore stories. Here is a library of books created by a community of parents and children where you can browse books that others have enjoyed and recommended.
Once your child has discovered a new book we invite them to create their own online Reading Den and fill a bookshelf of their own. You and your child can review the books they have enjoyed and help others choose their next read.
