Because of the potato me and my family left our home and travelled 6,000 miles to find a new life . . .

Slim Hannigan and her family are poor but happy. Theirs is a life filled with love and laughter - and a pet pig called Hamlet.

But things change overnight, and suddenly they find themselves facing hunger and danger like they have never known . . . So they leave their village in Ireland to journey to America where, they hope, family and fortune await them.

Slim soon finds herself living a life that feels just like one of those far-fetched stories her Da has always told. Can one brave girl keep her family together no matter what is thrown at them . . . ?

Review:

"Writing in the voice of a child and supporting the radicals against the establishment, Sandi Toksvig leaves an impression of courage in the face of adversity." (Guardian)

"History is brought convincingly and absorbingly to life" (Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times)

"Sandi Toksvig’s mini-epic is a roller-coaster of a read that races headlong through an important slice of history bringing it vividly to life as it does so . . . Sandi Toksvig brings alive important-to-know radical history by dressing it up in a fine coat of adventure." (Julia Eccleshare LoveReading)

"Well researched and accurate . . . Fascinating" (Carousel)

Book Description:
