Ally Sherrick – The Queen’s Fool (9–12 years)
Cat Sparrow is on the road. She’s following her sister, Meg, who was torn from their convent home and sent to London.
But Cat isn’t like other people – she thinks differently – and for a girl like her the world holds many perils.
Luckily she befriends a young actor, Jacques, and together they follow Meg’s trail to a wondrous place called the Field of Cloth of Gold. But here, they discover that the kingdoms of England and France are both in terrible danger …
Ally Sherrick weaves fact and fiction together to create a rip-roaring historical adventure set in the court of Henry VIII. Told with real heart and warmth, THE QUEEN’S FOOL explores historical attitudes towards people with learning disabilities, the importance of sisterly bonds, and using your talents to forge your own destiny.
