In a nutshell: gentle but exciting time slip evacuee story

In Holly Webb’s careful hands this time-slip evacuee story is filled with excitement, adventure and warmth. Travelling by train to see her grandma and great-grandma, Tilly falls asleep and dreams herself into the past. She experiences the same journey as taken by her great-gran as an evacuee over 70 years ago, and lives through the weeks that followed as her great-gran settled into life on a remote farm house on the Welsh borders. Young readers will be fascinated, and entranced by Tilly’s special friendship with the farm’s collie Tarran, who turns out to be a hero. A warm-hearted story that will live on in its readers’ imaginations. ~ Andrea Reece

About the Author

Holly Webb

Holly Webb was born and grew up in south-east London, but spent a lot of time on the Suffolk coast. As a child, she had two dogs, a cat, and at one point, nine gerbils (an accident). At about ten, Holly fell in love with stories from Ancient Greek myths, which led to studying Latin and Greek, and eventually to reading Classics at university. She worked for five years as a children's fiction editor, before deciding that writing was more fun, and easier to do from a sofa. She started writing several years ago while working as a children’s books editor. She has written over ninety books including the Animal Stories, My Naughty Little Puppy and Maisie Hitchins series for Stripes Publishing. Holly has also written In The Clever Little Kitten for World Book Day and a sequel to The Secret Garden. Holly Webb lives in Berkshire with her husband, children and three cats.
