Product description

When Mick Manning was a boy, his uncle never talked about the war, even though he had served in the Royal Artillery. But sometimes, during seaside holidays, Mick felt his uncle was remembering a different seaside altogether. A beach where, with thousands of other soldiers, he had once waited for rescue: a place called Dunkirk…

Inspired by his uncle’s experiences, Mick Manning’s moving picture book story invites children to travel from a sunny seaside holiday to the beaches of Dunkirk, witnessing one of the war’s most tragic and heroic events. Combining facts about the famous Dunkirk evacuation with a vivid personal account of family secrets, it is brought to life by vibrant artwork and photographs of wartime memorabilia: a unique format which truly makes this powerful story hit home.
