World War 2 Book
Authors: Jean Ure
Synopsis: Life in London during the
second world war, as seen through the eyes of a lively nine-year-old
boy. Neville Chamberlain has just made the announcement: Great Britain
and Germany are at war. Mum worries about Derek in the army; Dad's
thinking about the Andersen shelter he's just built in the garden;
Elaine is thinking about boys and stockings and her job at the factory.
Jenny, aged eleven is worrying about the animals. But Bobbie -- aged
nine, has never been so excited in his life. He thinks the war is the
most fantastic game. His only worry is that it will end before he is old
enough to join up -- he wants to see the planes -- He knows the names of
all of them; he wants to catch a German spy; he wants to be kept in the
Andersen shelter over night. It's only when his beloved Big Tom, a cat,
is missing believed dead, that Bobbie realises the truth about war. A
wonderful picture of childhood and a sensitive portrayal of family
loyalties in times of crisis. Excitement, terror, misery and humour --
the poignancy of Goodnight Mr Tom plus the humour of Hope and Glory in
this beautifully crafted young novel.
