Join us for a read of The Wool-pack by Cynthia Harnett (Methuen, 1951)
Set in 1493, The Wool Pack tells the story of 12-year-old Nicholas Fetterlock, son of a Cotswold wool merchant, who gets caught up in the intrigues of the wool trade, that include smuggling and efforts to ruin his father’s business.
A classic children’s novel, it contains some wonderful illustrations as well as a fair amount of historical detail that it doesn’t wear too heavily. Author Cynthia Harnett won the Carnegie Medal for this book.
