There are orphan stories with bold, indomitable orphans escaping cruel and unusual treatment, and then there’s this orphan story, which is wonderfully idiosyncratic, full of imagination and a celebration of blended families, baking and ingenuity.

Bridget has experienced a truly awful life at Miss Acrid’s Orphanage for Errant Childs (sic) and it seems set to get even worse when, in an act of unparalleled spite, Miss Acrid arranges for all the errant childs, except for Bridget, to be adopted, leaving her not just miserable and oppressed, but horribly lonely too.

Miss Acrid has reckoned without the lovely Mr Vanderpuff however and can’t stop Bridget escaping with him for adoption. Life at Vanderpuff’s Bake Shop seems magical after the orphanage, and literally so, when Bridget meets Pascal La Fleur, bakery elf, but Miss Acrid is out for revenge and determined to get Bridget back under her control. With nods to Dahl, who would have admired Miss Acrid, and huge amounts of invention, humour and heart, Martin Stewart has created a story and characters that will hugely entertain young readers.
