The Lovereading4Kids comment

It's 1870s England and imagine yourself as a poor 12 year old girl with few prospects. Can you make it as a servant in a Victorian household? The humorous, cartoon-style illustrations make learning fun, and encourage young readers to engage with the central character. Informative captions, a comprehensive glossary and an index make this title an ideal and fun introduction to the conventions of non-fiction text.

It is relevant to Key Stage 2 History and helps to achieve the goals of the Scottish Standard Curriculum 5-14.
