About this product
- DescriptionLizzie's time in Year 6 is coming to an end. All her 'gorger' (n gypsy) friends are going on to secondary school but Lizzie's dad wants her to stay back at the Traveller site and mind the younger kids so her mum can earn money as a cleaner. Lizzie may t be much good at reading or writing but she is a really talented artist. Both her friend Tess and her art teacher are sure she could get into art college, given half a chance. But how will she find that chance? And how could she possibly get her dad to agree to such an outlandish plan? The series 'The Travellers' is based on real life situations and follows what happens when a group of Romany gypsies come to live in a newly created council site on the edge of a village. Romany traditions and history are subtly woven into these fast moving stories and each one is told from the viewpoint of a different character.
