LoveReading View on Friend or Foe

March 2010 Guest Editor Michael Foreman:

"Towards the end of WWII enemy prisoners of War were brought to our village to help bring in the harvest.  We boys played football with them, the enemy, during their break times.  Children face-to-face with the enemy is the theme of Friend or Foe by Michael Morpurgo.  I have been fortunate to have worked with 'the other Michael' on more than twenty books.  As Friend or Foe is not one of them, I feel I can recommend this as a classic Morpurgo - children centre stage - not in a fantasy, but in a huge real life drama."

Friend or Foe Synopsis

Evacuated from London, David and Tucky feel like the war is a long way away from their new life in the countryside. Then one night, the distant crump of bombing brings the war back to them and shatters their new-found peace. When a German bomber crashes, the boys feel they should hate the airmen inside. But one of them saves David's life.
