Maggie and Oliver or A Bone of One's Own

Oliver Twist meets Holly Webb in this Victorian tale of a lost dog and a homeless girl. Loads of cuteness and loads of historical atmosphere. Maggie works as a young maid in a fine lady’s house – until the day she is thrown out into the street with only a tiny heart-shaped locket for a keepsake. Who is the lady in the locket? Meanwhile, a little dog named Oliver is pushing his nose along an icy sidewalk. He’s searching for his lost mistress, or at least something to eat. What he actually finds is a girl with round blue eyes and a golden locket: a girl who calls him Lucky. Together, can Maggie and Lucky find a welcoming home?
