Jim Jarvis liked to run away. It was hard in the 1860s,people used young boys like him to work in hot dangerous workhouses. All he wanted was his two sisters and his mother. Just as he escaped the cruel grimey Nick took him away and his dog snipe to guard Jim from escaping.
I thought this book was sad and miserable but also exciting in a way. It made me feel like what was going to happen next.
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.
