Daisy Dobbs lives far from her mother and little twin brothersl She is working as a maid in a big house owned by two refined older ladies. Daisy scrubs floors and sweeps stairs, washes dishes and peels potatoes. Though she sometimes makes mistakes — like hanging the ladies’ red bloomers out the window for all to see – she tries her best. And in the evenings, when Daisy has a moment to herself, she gets to do her favorite thing: borrowing books from the big house’s parlor. When a kitchen fire threatens to set the whole house ablaze, Daisy’s quick thinking saves the day – and the ladies reward her in the best possible way! Hughes captures the life of a young girl in Victorian England via her gouache and watercolor paintings that are filled with little details. Combining art and text, she allows young readers and listeners to identify with Daisy while discovering how different life was in the 19th century.
