An intimate look at two friends' experience during WWII. An interesting story, and it was nice to see it from the point of view of "the little people". I thought the story lagged a little at the end, though.
What really made the book for me, though was two things.
First, the book - the notebook style, complete with elasticized hold-closer, made the story feel very personal, like a memoir. Second, I really enjoyed the visuals. The spare drawing style was very effective, but the use of colour blew me away. There were very few colours used in the illustration, but Chantler applied them expertly to emphasize, to convey mood, and to manipulate our emotions. Very nicely done.
