Copper Top In 2009 students worked with publishing tutor Coral Atkinson to publish her book for children, Copper Top.

Alone in a strange land, orphaned Irish Aisling Lynch, a.k.a. Copper Top, searches the goldfields for her missing brother, Tim, and their friend Rory. Will Copper’s feisty self-reliance and her remarkable dog Nugget prove enough for her survival?

Best-selling novelist Coral Atkinson turns her attention to junior fiction in this compelling tale of 19th-century New Zealand. Copper Top is a lively story about an engaging and delightful girl from the past, written for the adventurous young heroines of today.
