The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody

£6.99

Pauline cares for Bee at the travelling fair. She washes her hair with apple shampoo and makes sure she can read. Pauline protects her from the curious interest of Ellis who considers Bee’s birthmark could be of interest to the fair visitors. When Pauline leaves, Bee is alone and unprotected.

Comfort comes from the woman in the orange hat, who Bee could not share with Pauline. Only Bee can see her. Yet, she comes to the rescue in ‘The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody‘. She leads Bee and the scruffy dog, Peabody, to the derelict house with the gingerbread trim, and the fading Mrs Potter and Mrs Swift.

The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody’ is a truly wonderful book. It is as good as Ruth Ellen’s mother’s apple cake, or Bee’s reading of ‘Heidi’. I urge Bookwagon readers to choose ‘The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody‘. This is a title that lingers with a story that matters.

Description

The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody

Kimberly Newton Fusco

(Faber & Faber)

Beatrice helps Pauline make hotdogs at the travelling fair. While Pauline keeps Beatrice’s memories and washes her hair in apple shampoo, she can’t protect her from the name callers. She cannot recall Beatrice’s real parents, either. When Pauline leaves the fair, Beatrice decides it’s time to seek the woman in the orange hat. ‘The Daring Escape of Beatrice and Peabody‘ is Beatrice’s search for a home and belonging. It is a glorious, memorable, magical story.
