Summary

Life has been difficult for 10-year-old Colley Trevelyan ever since he lost his mother and father in a fatal carriage accident. Most of the servants have been dismissed, and the house feels empty. To make matters worse, soon he will be living with his aunt and uncle who have never liked him. One night he suddenly wakes up wrapped tightly in a rough blanket. As he struggles to free himself, a strange man carries him to a waiting carriage. The next thing Colley knows, he is in London at the dreadful Broggin Home for Boys - and people are calling him Jed Broggin. Why is this happening to him? Barbara Brooks Wallace packs suspense and plot twists into this tale of a young boy finding a reason to live amidst horrible conditions. Sparrows in the Scullery won the Mystery Writers of America Edgar Award. With narrator Steven Crossley's dramatic flair and authentic accent, he transports youngsters to historical England to discover what life was like there a hundred years ago.
