'Crisp, transportive, uplifting. The fresh, irreverent voice of Tibb Ingleby is sheer brilliance. I loved it! 'BONNIE GARMUS, author of LESSONS IN CHEMISTRY


My one-time friend Maria did tell me once: "Make your own paradise, Tibb, since this world is no sweet place for people like us."Born a vagabond, Tibb Ingleby has never had a roof of her own. But her mother has taught her that if you're not too bound by the Big Man's rules, there are many ways a woman can find shelter in this world. Now her ma is dead in a trick gone wrong and young Tibb is orphaned and alone.

As she wends her way across the fields and forests of medieval England, Tibb will discover there are people who will care for her, as well as those who mean her harm. And there are a great many others who are prepared to believe just about anything. And so, when the opportunity presents itself to escape the shackles society has placed on them, Tibb and her new friends conjure an audacious plan: her greatest trickerie yet.

But before they know it, their hoax takes on a life of its own, drawing crowds - and vengeful enemies - to their door... A Little Trickerie is blazingly original, disarmingly funny and deeply moving. Portraying a side of Tudor England rarely seen, it's a tale of belief and superstition, kinship and courage, with a ragtag cast of characters and an unforgettable and distinctly unangelic heroine.

'Rosanna Pike is a bright and bold new voice in historical fiction and has created a heart-catching character in bad girl trickster, Tibb' ANNIE GARTHWAITE, author of CECILY'Striking, darkly funny and heartfelt, Tibb’s tale of trickery and friendship grabs you from the first page and doesn’t let go' FERDIA LENNON, author of GLORIOUS EXPLOITS'A Little Trickerie has a big heart, a subversive wit, and the most lovable protagonist I've come across in years ... A thrilling, joyous, intoxicating debut' SANDRA NEWMAN, author of THE HEAVENS
