Three children whirl back in time through an enchanted potter's wheel into the reality of evacuation in 1940s Britain. Whirl of the Wheel pulls feisty Connie, her brother Charlie-Mouse, and school pest Malcolm into dangers on the homefront and towards a military secret that will save their home from demolition. The children hit trouble when Malcolm fails to return to the present day.
