5.0 out of 5 stars Another classic from Magorian, 1 Feb. 2009
This review is from: Just Henry (Costa Book Award - Children's Book Award) (Paperback)
Being a big fan of Goodnight Mr. Tom, I was interested to read Michelle Magorian's latest book. Henry is a boy fascinated by the cinema, who goes mostly to escape the absence of his war hero father. He's disgusted to be paired with the son of a deserter and an illegitimate child when he's given a school project on the cinema, but once he breaks free from the narrow-minded influence of his tyrannical granny, it turns out nothing is as it seems. It's over 700 pages long, but it flows brilliantly and it's a real page turner. I got this book for my nana, who was a kid at the same time as Henry, and she enjoyed it just as much as I did. Gripping and charming in equal quantities, and a must-read for fans of Magorian.
