This beautiful HarperCollins Children’s Modern Classics edition is perfect for every bookshelf.

When his mother dies, Jim Jarvis is left all alone in London. Faced with the punishing brutality of the workhouse, he has no choice but to escape and make his way on the unforgiving streets.

Beyond each twist and turn of the city’s dark, cobblestoned lanes, Jim will find friends and foes and, eventually, a life to call his own – until his path leads him into the clutches of the vicious Grimy Nick. His escape will not be easy this time. Will he ever be free again?

Berlie Doherty’s unforgettable tale of an orphan in Victorian London gives voice to the boy whose plight inspired Dr Barnardo to establish his famous children’s homes, a legacy which endures today.
