Kisses on a postcard by Terence Frisby,
This review is from: Kisses on a Postcard: A Tale of Wartime Childhood (Hardcover)
Kisses on a Postcard is a true account of the experiences of Terence and his brother Jack during their evacuation to Cornwall from London during World war 2.
The evacuees soon start their own war against the local children and their story is both funny and moving.
They quickly learn the ways of the countryside, while Elsie from the end cottage willingly broadens their knowledge of the birds and the bees. This is a brilliant account of an event that we hope will never be repeated.
The title refers to a clever code devised by their Mother. Kisses on a postcard sent home denoted that they were well treated, while no kisses meant they wanted to come home. Fortunately Terence drew a whole ring of kisses around his postcard.
