Michael Foreman’s evocation of his Suffolk childhood during the Second World War. The reader is enticed into this carefully drawn world and in the process learns much about everyday life in Britain at that time. In addition to his wonderful watercolours, Foreman integrates contemporary visual elements, such as cigarette cards and advertisements, into the illustrations. This book is effective because it conveys information in such a personal way.
