I doubt that anything will beat this traditional page-to-stage adaptation for ceaselessly involving telling of a cracking story." Fiona Mountford, Evening Standard --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

The story is about young Carrie and her brother Nick, who are evacuated during The Second World War, to Wales to stay with Mr Evans and Auntie Lou.
Mr Evans is a fierce, angry man, while his younger sister, Louise, is quite the opposite. Auntie Lou, as Carrie and Nick like to call her, is timid and shy and lets herself be bullied by her older brother.
I don't want to spoil the story for anyone, so I won't say too much about the plot, except this...
Carrie and Nick have to stay with Mr Evans and Auntie Lou, while their friend Albert Sandwich gets to stay with Hepzibah and Mister Johnny. The book is about Carrie and Nick's stay with the Evanses, and is really great. I just kept on wanting to read another few pages each time before I put it down.
The only thing is that this book is called Carrie's War, and is about a young evacuee. However, in the book, the only references to the war were that Carrie, Nick and Albert were evacuees, Mr Evans putting up the blackout curtains and a mention of bombs. I appreciate that the children were evacuated to get away from the war, but I would have liked to have seen more historical information in this book; maybe mentioning rationing and going into more detail about bombing.
Other than that, I think this book was really good, so I am going to give it 4 Stars!
Nina Bawden really depicts what life was like for some WWII evacuees. The characters are unforgettable and the story is original and heartwarming. A must-read for every child.
I would recommend this book to any ages · Also it is a great book to read with someone else ·I read this book with my father and we discussed the book alot· So yes I really enjoyed this book!
