go to the bit where Mary Ann...
 grows up   goes to school   moves to Coventry   moves to London   changes her name   falls in love   writes stories

What did Mary Ann do instead?

She got on with doing what other young girls did.

Making mud pies by the canal with her big brother Isaac.
Watching the coal miners as they walked to work.
Listening to the weavers and their clattering looms.
Getting bored when her dad talked about politics.
...and maybe even playing Kings and Queens.

What do you think she did when she got a bit older?

Go forward to find out...
