A Child of the Blitz,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Bombs on Aunt Dainty (Paperback)
Judith Kerr's account of an ordinary young girl living in a special historical time is gripping. The mixture of the banal and dramatic rings true and brings to life Anna's experiences. The writing style is deceptively simple, but elegant and honest.
Some reviewers have compared this book slightly less favourably with the first in the series, but I found this one even more absorbing and beautifully written.
My child is 8 so can read many books herself. It means I can choose books to read aloud that I will also thoroughly enjoy. Here is one such.
