I gave my students readers for them to speed up their reading comprehension and as a teacher, I had to finish reading this in just a day! Doooooh! But it was clearly a fun story to read.

a peek at another era

The story, set in London , gives a wonderful glimpse into pre-WWII life. The people are skillfully drawn and the action is well-paced.
