A Vicarage Family

Part of an exciting new publishing partnership between Puffin and the Imperial War Museum, this is a beautiful new edition of the charming novel by bestselling author of Ballet Shoes, Noel Streatfield. This edition includes a foreword from Dame Jacqueline Wilson, and a specially written introduction by IWM curator Laura Clouting.

Once there were three little girls. Isobel, the eldest, was pretty, gentle and artistic; Louise the youngest, was sweet and talented - and then there was Vicky, 'the plain one', the awkward and rebellious one who didn't fit in at school or at home. Growing up in a big family Vicky feels overlooked, but gradually begins to realize that she might not be quite as untalented as she feels . . . A Vicarage Family is the first part in a fictionalized autobiography in which Noel Streatfeild tells the story of her own childhood, painting a poignant and vivid picture of daily life in an impoverished, genteel family in the years leading up to the First World War.
