Winner of the Blue Peter Book Award and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize, Rooftoppers is a charming novel.

 Everyone thinks that Sophie is an orphan. Found floating in a cello case, she is the only recorded female survivor of a shipwreck on the English Channel. But Sophie remembers seeing her mother wave for help… When the child welfare agency threatens to send Sophie to an orphanage, Sophie and her guardian flee to Paris to find her mother, starting with the only clue she has – the address of the cello maker.
