Nancy and Plum is one of my favorite books of all time. I just saw it and thought it looked cool and when I started, I couldn't put the book down!
This book is an adventurous story about two orphan sisters, Nancy and Plum(Pamela). They live with their mean and careless Uncle John and the two sisters are sent away to a boarding school as soon as Uncle John gets a chance. The school is run by a cruel woman who doesn't care about children. They suffer chores and teasing by the woman's neice, Marybelle. They also meet friends and have lots of adventures together. Nancy and Plum always wish that they had a kind mother and father who cared for them and gave them enough food, unlike the boarding school. Will their dream come true? Read the book to find out.
"Nancy and Plum" and "Mrs. Piggle Wiggle" were made into plays by the Seattle Children''s Theater which were done exactly the way Betty would have wanted. They appealed to adults as well as children and are now being performed by other children''s theaters throughout the United States.
Luckily, Nancy and Plum have each other, and though their prospects may be bleak, they're determined to change their lot for the better. If their plan works, the spirited sisters will never spend Christmas at the cold, dark boarding school again. But what will they find on the other side of Mrs. Monday's gate?
