    • The original is on display at the Foundling Museum, which we visited at the weekend. It’s Hetty Feather – my daughter’s absolute favourite book.

    • It’s my daughter’s absolute favourite! The problem is I think she might give up reading once she’s finished the series as nothing will be good enough again, in her eyes!

  4. I love Hetty Feather and if that’s the original manuscript in the background what a lovely book to be writing in, I’d much prefer to write a novel in a book like that.

    • We’re big Hetty Feather fans here and that is the original manuscript, on display at the Foundling Museum.

  6. I can see that this is the book together with it in it’s original form. To me, the photo shows the power of writing 🙂 Grace has joined the big read this summer and I have read more books than I have in years!

    • I’ve read more books than I have in years too! My daughter loves the Hetty Feather books, but she doesn’t generally read as much as I’d like her to!

    • No, nothing as cool as that! Although this is the original manuscript of Hetty Feather, which is VERY cool in my daughter’s eyes!

  7. Ooh lovely, the illustration looks like a paper cut, I have a couple of those on my office wall as my sister is a paper cut artist. I think they’re fabulous. Is this work for you, are you proof reading the book?

    • No, sadly not work for me! It’s the original manuscript of Hetty Feather at the Foundling Museum, with the published version. I’d never heard of paper cuts! But being an artist sounds like a fab thing to do. x

  9. I’m very intrigued as to whats going on here, making notes about the story? or two books, same story?

    Post a Reply
    • It’s the same story – the original version and the published version.

    • My daughter isn’t so keen on the TV show because it’s actually not that true to the book. But she’s definitely interesting and brave!
