Nothing is going to stop Margaret Thursday from making her own way in the world - not a horrible orphanage, a cruel matron, or even the fact she was named after the day she was found!

“Noel Streatfeild’s position in the children’s book world is unique. She is endlessly inventive, full of verve and real understanding of the surfaces of childhood. Her stories are rich in documentary interest and entertainment, escapism of a most satisfying sort.”
“Written for unalloyed enjoyment. Authenticity blends beautifully with romance. Children will love it.”
Margaret Thursday grandly announced to the orphanage children, “I’m not properly an orphan. I was found on a Thursday on the church steps, with three of everything, all of the very best quality.” And each time she was asked, “Who do you think you might be, then?” she had dozens of ready replies.
Whoever she was, Margaret made herself the arch enemy of the cruel matron at the orphanage. Soon things reached such a dreadful state that she decided to run away from St Luke’s, but not without Peter and Horatio, and her three of everything. So the children fled in the night to become the unlikeliest leggers ever seen on a canal boat. And Margaret proved that she was a person of the very best quality.
