Blewcoat Boy




Victorian London comes to life in this sparkling comedy-adventure from the pen of Leon Garfield.

In a cave on the wild side of St James's Park live two ragged children; young Nick and his nine-year-old sister Jubilee. Once they had a father, but now they are alone - and Nick knows it is his responsibility to find Jubilee a husband. But who would want to marry a girl who can neither cook nor sew, read nor write?
