About this deal

Robert Westall's books have been published in 21 different countries and in 18 different languages, including Braille. And as he encounters new characters, and forges relationships with them, their time together is temporary. This book goes through so many subjects from Harry’s utter heartbreak at the beginning believing his family have all been killed, to all the different character types he meets and it even touches upon sexual abuse. We also use them to help detect unauthorized access or activity that violate our terms of service, as well as to analyze site traffic and performance for our own site improvement efforts. He wants to discover the real Britain, so travels mostly by walking or using the train and talks to people he meets along the way.

There are places I've been to here - a nostalgia trip when thinking of many childhood holidays in Cornwall, but many I haven't, and taking this trip with Mr. I felt the same about The Boy in the Striped Pajamas so I either have a particular issue with young boys caught up in WWII, or I'm dead inside. Twelve-year-old Harry struggles to make it on his own after his family is lost in a German air raid.There was high unemployment as the country was in transition from industry, manufacturing and mining to a more service-oriented country.

The reality of war is the chill current that runs through the five stories in Westall's latest collection. As a result, the book is full of observations on the English, the Scot, the Welsh, and the northern Irish.Westall's 1975 novel The Machine Gunners, about a group of children in England during World War II, inspired many letters from readers who had themselves been children during the war. Paul Theroux undertook his journey round the coast of the United Kingdom exactly 25 years ago, in 1982. Back to where everything was just as it always had been, and you did things without thinking about them.
