"There's a girt who's a gypsy. She has rings in her ears and she sometimes comes to school in a little wagon."

Kizzy Lovell is a gypsy girl. She has her gran and her horse, Joe, and she doesn't need anything else. Then Gran dies, her wagon burns, and Kizzy is left all alone-in a community that hates her.

Thirty years after its original publication, Rumer Godden's beloved story of one girl's courage, and how an entire community learns to celebrate differences is now back in print for a new generation of readers to enjoy.

Itinerant Kizzy Lovell must summon all her strength when unfortunate circumstances leave her stranded in an unwelcoming town in Gypsy Girl by Rumer Godden, which first appeared in 1972 as The Diddakoi.

    I am writing about Gypsies, and this book only added to my knowledge through Gypsy family life. This is a story about a Gypsy girl here in America, and the discrimination portrayed in the book is pretty standard in Europe too. There are better written accounts of stories like this, and I did not finish the book.

    I loved this book as a child and love it even more now. Many of the books from this era do not hold up well in light of the changes that have taken place in the last 50 years. This one is still a winner.

    It was a perfect gift.

    Excellent book about children's harsh treatment of others who seem 'different' to them and about a child's adjustment after having been ripped out of one culture into a radically different one. Charming story! I was late discovering Rumer Godden and have ordered several of her books from Amazon. Glad I finally found her.

    I love reading anything that Rumer Godden writes. I enjoyed this very much. A cute story with a bit of a moral to it.

    Though it is a children's book I've always liked the story and I was happy to find one that was in great condition and cheap too!

    A soothing story, gentle, but not too sweet. I found it particularly pleasant in this restless times full of revolutions and threatening wars.

    A must read for everyone. A classic tale of childhood bullying and the lessons learned about discrimination. Great story too!
