Goodnight Mister Tom (Clothbound Classics)
|Author:||Michelle Magorian; Matt Jones (Designed by)|
Mum said war was a punishment form God for people's sins, so he'd better watch out.
She didn't tell him what to watch out for, though.
When the Second World War breaks outs, young Willie Beech is evacuated to the countryside.
A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of kind old Tom Oakley. But then his cruel mother summons him back to war-torn London . . .
Will he ever see Mister Tom again?
