Reviews

Very interesting and colourful. * Cork Evening Echo * Inspiring... simply told and yet shockingly moving. * Connexion * Through the picture book medium this cleverly tells the story of a relative reluctant to tell of his wartime memories. * School Librarian * An evocative and moving account of a young man's experience of the events of 1940. * Books For Keeps * Mick Mannings moving story invites children to discover one of Britain's most tragic and heroic wartime events. * Best of British *
