'The little cradle creaked on curved rockers, creak, creak on the flagstone floor; a tiny cradle of dark brown wood, with carved acorns on each of the corners of the square wooden hood. Figures in long dresses and white bonnets surrounded it. One of them turned her face to Jack. 'Jack, please help us!'' The Naming of William Rutherford is a time slip story that links Jack in real time, to people living in Eyam, an isolated village in Derbyshire in the plague year of 1665. The novel was shortlisted for the Sheffield Children's Book Award and nominated for the Carnegie Medal.
