“Delightful … with its edge-of-your-seat pace, it deserves applause.” Sunday Times, Children’s Book of the Week


“Storytelling at its best … a classic in the making.” The Scotsman


To avoid financial ruin, the Pringle family’s theatre-troupe has left London behind, travelling to the north of England by train. With new audiences to play to, and less competition, they hope to make enough money to pay off their debts back home. But will their plans be foiled by the odious Olio Sleevery? It’s time for young actors Rosie and Charlie to save the day – and, with the help of their new friend Edie Boiler, ensure the thunderous success of the company’s first performance.


A wonderful gallery of eccentric characters and an exuberant plot with a twist at the end ... this is storytelling at its theatrical best!


“French is a writer of tremendous charm… Children of nine and upwards will want to jump aboard.” The Literary Review


“Vivian French is a sublime storyteller.” Sunday Telegraph
