4.0 out of 5 stars War Boy, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Based on the subject of children of the homefront during the second world war, this book is written in such a clever way that most children would understand how the children felt about life during that period. The book takes a very light hearted view, is humorous and has great pictures, I think children would enjoy this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Empathetic Childrens Viewpoint, 1 Mar 2012
By 
Ele Math "EleM" (Vancouver, BC, Canada) - See all my reviews
This book brings a child's perspective of a life altering event to the attention of current contemporary readers, and their families with the aid of powerful illustrations. Books of this nature remind us all that children do indeed have a valuable perspective and voice to offer. Should be in every school library.
