Meet the leader of the Suffragettes, Emmeline Pankhurst, and a particularly plucky pup, during a momentous time in history!
Alfie can't believe his luck when he is allowed to keep a tiny puppy he finds abandoned on the street. Rascal is cute as a button and has lots of attitude, and Emmeline Pankhurst is thrilled that her ward Alfie has a new friend - after all, the Suffragettes could use their help. Alfie and Rascal deliver messages between the Suffragettes as they organise their campaign. But it's sometimes dangerous work, and it's not long before Alfie and Rascal find out the true cost of the fight for women's right to vote.
This brand-new series from award-winning author Megan Rix is full of adventure, fascinating history and super-cute animals. Perfect for 6-8 year old readers and fans of Dick King-Smith and Michael Morpurgo.
