Description
Information
Daisy is brought up in a foundling's hospital in Victorian times. At 10 she is sent into service as a skivvy at the Dobell Academy. There she watches all the pupils learning how to be young ladies, wearing fine clothes and learning how to read, write and . . . dance.

Daisy dreams of being like them one day and painstakingly teaches herself to read with the help of one kind teacher. She is caught dancing in one of the piano rooms and is reproved for having 'ideas above her station', but undaunted she perseveres with her dream to be a "beautiful lady on the stage".

A wonderful, unashamedly sentimental rags-to-riches story which young readers will adore. 'My Fair Lady' meets 'The Little Match Girl' from a prize-winning author.
