All Lizzie's gorger (non-gypsy) friends are going on to secondary school, but Lizzie's dad wants her to leave school as is the gypsy custom. Lizzie is a really talented artist. Can she find a way to get to art college?

Lizzie and Mike, her brother, belong to a group of Romany gypsies that have come to live in a newly created council site on the edge of a village. Their stories tie in with pony-mad Tess, who sees their arrival as a chance to chase her dreams of becoming a talented rider, and Ben, her brother, who does not see it the same way.
Written by popular author Rosemary Hayes, The Travellers is aimed at readers between 9 and 13 with an average reading age of 10 years. Each book is based on research undertaken by Rosemary. She skillfully weaves together the stories of the four young teenagers, from both traveller and non-traveller backgrounds, to explore different attitudes towards Romany gypsies. These are, first and foremost, great stories which both boys and girls will enjoy.
