Fleur Hitchcock talks about the book that made her realise not all heroines needed to be nice.

Night Birds on Nantucket by Joan Aiken is the third in a series that began with the Wolves of Willoughby Chase and the first to feature sparky street urchin Dido Twite as it's protagonist.

We also discuss the book's influence on her Clifftoppers series whose characters draw on Dido's pluck, invention and kindness.
