Penny’s War is the story of two young evacuees who get sent to a remote village in Yorkshire and find themselves billeted on a couple who turn out to be German spies. They discover what their hosts are up to and this puts them in great danger.
This is an ideal read for children studying WW2 in their history lessons at school. Not only is it an exciting story but it also gives useful information about wartime issues like rationing, British Restaurants and the school leaving age at the time. ‘Penny’s War’ can be ordered direct from the publisher. Go to and click on children in the menu.
Happy reading
