The Lovereading4Kids comment
Archie's War provides an astonishing insight into what it was like to be a 10 year old child in one of the most important moments in history - the First World War that began in 1914. With its striking scrapbook style - containing flaps and fold-out letters - Archie's War is fun, informative and instantly accessible to a young audience. In the years that follow, until the war ends in 1918, he writes in the book and we experience life through Archie's eyes and learn about his world and his family in an exhilarating collage of strip comics, doodles, drawings, cartoon characters, mementoes, photos, thoughts and jokes.
Archie's War by Marcia Williams
When 10-year-old Archie Albright is given a scrapbook for his birthday in April 1914, he thinks he'll fill it with comics, souveniers and funny stories about his family. But then, on 3 August 1914, war breaks out, and his life changes for ever. Archie tells the story of the First World War from his point of view, filling his scrapbook with anecdotes about life in London's East End, newspaper clippings, letters from his dad and uncle who are fighting in France, and his own war-inspired comic strips.
Archie's War is funny, touching and accessible, and gives a unique insight into what life was life for a child during the First World War.
Archie's scrapbook is a thing of beauty. - The Observer
