Touching and cleverly crafted, how the two stories from different times are linked though a picture is ingenious and wholly absorbing. When Mallie buys an old picture at a junk shop for her mother’s birthday, she has no idea that it will bring together the lives of her grandmother and the crabby old pet shop owner. It is a mystery that takes some unravelling – one of evacuees in the Second World War and one set in the present day. Both stories are full of interest and their resolution is most satisfying. Mixing the period appeal of Michelle Magorian's books with the contemporary drama of Cathy Cassidy this is an absorbing mystery story straddling three generations from WWII Lake District to present-day London. It's a terrific adventure and mystery that begins to unfold with each turn of the page with well drawn characters who kids of 9+ can relate to. Great read.
