I bought this book for my son who is studying WW2 at school this term. It really appealed to him because it is the story of a boy his age. The illustrations are beautiful and the little information panels are fascinating. I bought another copy and gave it to my grandfather who was a boy in the war and he loved it too. Worth every penny - a book to keep.

I bought this book as a teacher as I wanted to use it as a starting point for my topic work about World War 2 evacuees. Unfortunately it came too late, but I loved all the information it gave and the beautiful illustrations (drawings and water colours) which i did use as the basis of some art work with the children. Will definitely use it more next time. A lovely book as a present too.
