I think this book is great! It tells you what it was like for children in the war and with me being 13 years old i can relate to it. I love the description of the little things like the weather or the christmas presents. I have read The Voyage on the Great Titanic, which is also a book in this series, but i still think this is the best. I recommened it to all children!

The Blitz is a captivating story about World War II. Edie's diary tells of how her family cope with life during the Blitz and the terrible explosions. This book is very educational and helps me understand what life was like in London during this period. I think it would be very helpful for other children who are studying the war period at school as well as being very enjoyable.

An exellent book which makes you realise what the 2nd world war was like really. It has made me realise what people had to go through. I actually read it for a welsh project, and iv'e really got into it now. It's so good i've had to re-new it at the library at least twice so that i don't get a fine! I recommend this book for readers age 10 up.

This book was v. good, mainly because it allowed you to get inside Edie's head and see what it was like for people in the Blitz. I had always been interested in WW2 fiction, but as I didn't like the My Story series, I didn't believe that I would like this book. However, the book proved me wrong. It was well written and DEFINETELY over too quickly. Read it.

An excellent little account of the build-up of the war from July 1940 until January 1941. This was the time when bombs started dropping on London and the war became real for many millions of civilians.

This account is told from the point of view of Edie (Edith) Benson, who turned 12 as she wrote her diary. She sees the demolition of large parts of London by German bombs, the evacuation of many of her friends and the stress that the war causes her family. They build an air raid shelter in their garden and spend long periods of time sheltering from the bombs, food is rationed and school stops.

Suitable for quite young children, this book is an accessible way to learn about some of the human consequences of war.

I bought this for a young friend to help with her history homework. She loved it but her Mum also found it really interesting and they both read it. It is an excellent read and easy for children to understand and visualise what it must have been like to be a child in England during WW2 and the Blitz.
