Адаптированная книга на английском языке «Tinkers Island by Stephen Rabley». Аудиокнига на английском.
London, November 1798
Jenny Tinker is fourteen. She and her father, Sam, work in Covent Garden market. They sell fruit and vegetables. The Tinkers get up early every morning and work very hard.
One day after work Jenny sees a man. He is running and he has got a watch in his hand.
“Here — take this,” he says, and gives Sam the watch. Five seconds later a lot of angry people run down the street after Sam.
“There’s the thief! He’s got my watch — stop him! ’’ says an old man.
“You’re coming with us,” two policemen say to Sam. They do not listen to Jenny’s story.
Jenny does not have a mother or any brothers and sisters. Who can she talk to? She goes to Peter Stone’s house. Peter works in the market.
“What’s going to happen?» asks Jenny. Peter looks sad. “They send thieves to Australia,” he says. Peter is right.
A week later Jenny watches a big ship — the Black Star — on the River Thames. One of the men on it is her father.
