I really enjoyed this story and really identified with the characters. -- Reader Review First News By combining real historical events with the interplay between child and beast, Angus has hit a formula that resonates with children from all backgrounds. The Telegraph Immaculately researched and based on true events, Angus's novel has all the warmth, charm and poignancy of The Railway Children and is a wonderful addition to children's wartime classic fiction. Lancashire Evening Post I gave the book five out of five because of the front cover and also because of the characters.I think the book cover looks very sad. Because the person who has drawn it has used nice dark shades. To make you think that it is very sad Schools Book Club An entertaining read and the inclusion of emotional letters from father to son brings the story to life and will melt the hardest heart The Guardian Children's Books
