Product Description

Product Description

12-year-old Margaret McGuire hasn’t seen her dad for six years. He’s been a soldier serving in France and when he fails to return home at the end of the Second World War, Margaret is anxious to find him. Her search takes her, along with her mum and brother, to the coast, where a series of colourful characters, including a giant, dancing crab, lead them to find out what has happened to him. But someone is out to prevent their happy reunion and, as the children are put in mortal danger, it becomes a race against time and a rising tide.

More About the Author

Rachel Robb is a daydreamer and writer, who lives in Staffordshire. Early school reports suggested that she spent too much time with her head in the clouds. Well I'm afraid nothing's changed. She still has her head in the clouds, and that's where she thinks up the plots for her books and short stories.

Rachel has published two books for children aged 9 upwards. The first, Finding Mr McGuire, is an adventure story and is set in England in 1946. The main characters, Margaret and Philip McGuire, are named after Rachel's parents, who were children themselves in 1946. Although written for children, the story is a source of nostalgia for anyone, who remembers the post-war years. The second book, Tom from the Future, is a fantasy adventure set in Llandudno, North Wales in both 2013 and Victorian times. Rachel spent many happy holidays in Llandudno as a child, and writing the book was an excuse to go to Llandudno and relive some of the memories.

Rachel Robb is married with three children and a ginger tom cat. She also writes marketing content for small businesses and enjoys pyrography, which is another name for burning designs onto wood.

I bought this book to read with my daughter. We read the first few chapters together but then it was her bedtime so I promised to wait till the folllowing evening before I would pick it up again. Needless to say I had finished it before I went to sleep!
Wonderfully written with a great twist at the end. Its the first book my daughter and I have read together and talked about the story and what she thinks will happen.
Sometimes a book isnt just about finding something to occupy yourself for an hour, its about cuddling up with your girl on the sofa and entering a world of imagination - this book is perfect for that!
Happy reading x

Excellent read for children, very absorbing story of family life during the war. Very well written with descriptive narrative. Would highly recommend for parents to buy for their children. Nice change from Harry Potter.

I loved reading Finding Mr McGuire. It really took me back to my childhood, spending every minute I could reading Enid Blyton's books. Good story and very well written. Similar to Rosumunde Pilcher books which are very descriptive. Think it would be a refreshing read for children today. Looking forward to the next book.
