Korte samenvatting
Lady Daisy is a book by Dick King-Smith. The main character is Ned, and he finds Lady Daisy in his grandmother’s attic. She has been asleep in there since the year 1901. It turns out, Daisy is a talking Victorian doll.

Ned tries to bring Daisy up to date on the world, and at the same time, she teaches him. About history, and, more importantly, Ned needs to learn to stand up for himself. Troy Bullock, the school bully, is the reason for that. Then there is also Mr Merryweather-Jones. Who is he, and, Ned wonders, what are his intentions surrounding Lady Daisy?
