Synopsis

Put Out the Light by Terry Deary

It's 1940 and war is underway. In Sheffield, England, a brother and sister set out to solve a mystery, brazenly believing that the air-raid signals are only false alarms. In Dachau, Germany, two boys come up with a bold plan to bring an end to the war and help a Polish prisoner escape. But when the bombs falling on Sheffield become a reality, and the German boys' plan hurls them unwittingly into the midst of the action, the children's adventures swiftly become a terrifying fight to survive.

Reviews

'This is a thrilling tale following the adventures of two groups of children during World War 11. This is a really substantial book which is a great example of history combining with literacy'

'The creator of Horrible Histories will take you on a journey that you'll never forget in 'Put Out The Light'! Join our heroes, in England and in Germany, as they have to battle through a real-life war, survive against all odds, and solve crimes along the way. This book has it all'. Blue Peter Book Club 'The balance of great dialogue and humour, blend seamlessly together in an exciting, nail biting read.'
