Product description

Review

Saunders has created a simply brilliant book...E. Nesbit would be proud and honoured by this beautifully crafted, funny, heart-breaking story (Daily Mail)

The return of the Psammead, as superbly grumpy as ever, was magical. This book is a delight. (Katherine Rundell, Author of Rooftoppers)

This is a skillful and deeply moving piece of work: poignant, beautifully judged, not a crass pastiche but a respectful homage that recycles its source material to pack a powerful anti-war punch. Saunders's novel does what fiction does best: it focuses on individuals we care about in order to make a universal point. (Guardian)

Despite lively characterisation, and realistic ambience and expressions ("a proper caution"), the voice is unlike Nesbit's, but has a skill and charm of its own, as well as compassion and conviction (The Sunday Times)

Book Description

Five Children on the Western Front is Kate Saunder's incredible, heart-wrenching sequel to E. Nesbit's Five Children and It, set on the eve of the First World War. The five children have grown up - war will change their lives for ever.
