The Pavee and the Buffer Girl
A stunning story by the much-missed Siobhan Dowd, brought to life in stunning ink-and-wash artwork by rising star Emma Shoard.
Printed on dyslexia friendly paper.
Jim Curran is a Traveller child newly settled in the town of Dundray.
The authorities have forced him into the local school, but it’s a hostile place for a Traveller.
He suffers prejudice and violence but also makes a friend in a girl called Kit.
Under Kit’s care Jim begins to find a place for himself in Dundray, but everyday prejudice and a shocking act of violence intervene to uproot his life once more.
