Product description

A tender and beautifully evoked story which sweeps readers back into the Second World War era. When the war thrusts scrawny evacuee Willie Beech into the care of a gruff old man, an unlikely bond flourishes between them. But as Willie enjoys his first ever taste of kindness, suddenly his happiness is under threat again… This heartwarming classic sets universal human themes against a stunning and memorable wartime backdrop.

”... a marvellous story that knows just how to grab the emotions.” Guardian

    I read this book in Year 5 when I was learning about the war in History. The book is a bit sad because the mother is mean to the boy Willie.

    This book uses brilliant words and the story is really good but sad in parts.

    Every body has to read this book.

    I absolutely LOVED this book the first time my Dad read it to me when I was seven! Now I have read it many times on my own, and watched the film at least three times! I’d recommend this to anyone 9+, because it can be scary in places.
