Goldie at the Orphanage by Martha Sandwall-BergstromGoldie at the Orphanage introduces a new hero for children aged 5-8. Shipwrecked as a baby, Goldie goes to live in an orphanage, where her golden hair gets her into trouble. Then a new girl called Lotta arrives and Goldie starts to have more fun, until the time comes for them to be auctioned off to the highest bidder. What will happen to the two friends? The lively illustrations, reminiscent of Shirley Hughes, bring out the warmth and vivacity of Goldie. This story is sure to enchant.
'I liked the pictures but thought it was a sad story. I would like to read the sequel which is Goldie at the Farm.'
'With lively illustrations, this traditional-style storybook will capture the imagination of young girls as it introduces Goldie as a resilient new heroine.'
'I liken reading this book to listening to my grandmother telling me about her childhood. It is utterly fascinating ... accompanied by truly beautiful watercolours that bring the story alive. I will undoubtedly buy part two.'

The shocking relevation that orphaned boys and girls could be bought at auctions will draw strong responses from some children.
'An Anne of Green Gables-like story. Lovely clear, soft illustrations.'
