    This book is a great way to find out about historical people and facts of the time The mix of the story of Beth and the kittens is a great way to keep young and old readers alike interested A great way to learn about Florence nightingale and how people lived in the past I will be passing this book onto friends as a great read

    This standalone book is the third in the series by award winning author Megan Rix about historical figures and their animals It follows on from Winston and the Marmalade Cat and Emmeline and the Plucky Pup What is so appealing about this series is that readers experience high adventure stories about courageous and plucky animals while learning about true people from history and different historical eras Although targeted at the junior fiction market there is much appeal in these books for older readers as well In a similar vein to Michael Morpurgo Megan Rix is very skilled at blending her stories with real historical events to make history accessible to childrenSuitable for 6
