The story of a journey made by Little Nell, a fourteen year old girl and her Grandfather, the proprietor of the eponymous shop.

Quilp wants revenge and he wants Little Nell. The journey takes them through various trials for her and temptations for the Grandfather, and on the journey, they meet with a mixture of kindness and ill fortune. Appropriate for all ages.
