Morse Pond Review: Rooftoppers


Katherine Rundell and illustrated by Terry Fan

This heartwarming story is about a girl who lost her mom on a sinking ship when she was one. Sophie was found in a cello case floating in the English Channel. Ever since Charles — a loving scholar and fellow passenger — rescued her, Sophie has wanted more than anything to find her mom. When the orphanage threatens to take Sophie away, she and Charles flee to Paris. This book has a lot to connect to, such as Sophie plays the cello, she loves to read, and she loves to climb.

~ Ava, age 11
