Maisie Morris and the Awful Arkwrights

By Joanna Nadin

Published Jan 2010

Maisie Morris and her mum live in Withering Heights Retirement Home. Mrs Morris looks after the residents, polishing bottoms and scrubbing smalls, while Maisie plays cards and learns how to tango with the flamboyant Loveday Pink. But they all live in fear of Mr and Mrs Arkwright, the awful owners, who serve cabbage water for lunch and confiscate pets. Nothing but a miracle will deal with the revolting pair. And then a new resident arrives with mysterious powers and a jewel thieving monkey… A dazzlingly funny debut novel.
