My Story: Dodger!
Jim Eldridge (Author)
In 1840, 9-year old Dick Maybury arrives in London with nowhere to stay, no money, and no friends. A chance meeting with the Adelphi gang gives him all three. But the gang make their living outside the law, and Dick learns that the life of a pickpocket is very hard to leave behind.
This wonderful tale of Victorian times will vividly bring to life the murky underside of the Victorian underworld in an grittier story than Oliver Twist.
