Sam's Spitfire Summer captures all the loneliness of the billeting hall and the excitement of finding a crashed Messerschmitt in this thrilling World War Two adventure, with facts included.
When Sam is evacuated, he might as well be going to the moon. Ten-year-old Sam watches the familiar sights of London disappear in a cloud of steam as he sets off on a journey to the unfamiliar world of country cottages, farmyard animals and a hostile welcome at the village school.
Packed with fantastic fact pages about life on the home front, and with amazing illustrations by Charlie Clough, here is a book which vividly portrays a child's-eye-view of life at the outset of the Second World War.
