The Diddakoi

Rumer Godden

“There’s a girt who’s a gypsy. She has rings in her ears and she sometimes comes to school in a little wagon.”

Kizzy Lovell is a gypsy girl. She has her gran and her horse, Joe, and she doesn’t need anything else. Then Gran dies, her wagon burns, and Kizzy is left all alone-in a community that hates her.

Thirty years after its original publication, Rumer Godden’s beloved story of one girl’s courage, and how an entire community learns to celebrate differences is now back in print for a new generation of readers to enjoy.
