The Lovereading4Kids comment
Chosen as the Puffin Modern Classic 1980 - 1989
A wonderful debut novel from an author who is now widely acknowledged as one of the great children’s novelists of our time. A storyline that will pull on the heartstrings more than most and provide moments of grief and joy in equal measure. Be sure to check out other books by this author. Just Henry, A Spoonful of Jam, A little Love Song, Cuckoo In The Nest.
Perfect for Reluctant Readers as well as keen readers. To view other titles we think are suitable for reluctant readers please click here.
Goodnight Mister Tom (Puffin Modern Classics) by Michelle Magorian
Young Willie Beech is evacuated to the country as Britain stands on the brink of WW2. A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom Oakley - but his new-found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in London.
'Everyone's idea of a smash-hit first novel: full blown characters to love and hate, moments of grief and joy, and a marvellous story that knows just how to grab the emotions.' Guardian
