"A classic tale of tyranny overcome. . . . Voake makes this neglected gem -- an unforgettable read-aloud -- look new." -- KIRKUS REVIEWS (STARRED REVIEW)

Elsie Piddock is a born skipper. By the time she's seven, the tireless girl can even outskip the fairies and is rewarded with a gift of rare and lasting value. Can she use it many years later to save the children's fabled skipping grounds from a greedy, factory-building lord? Charlotte Voake's exuberant art pairs with Eleanor Farjeon's unforgettable tale for a match made in picture-book heaven.
