Read full description of the books:



At first glance, this book seems to be yet another typical story about a girl and her cat who keeps on running away, but once you start reading it, you realise there's more to it than meets the eye. Set against the backdrop of World War 2, and more particularly, the D-Day landing practices, it gives the reader an entirely unique and different perspective on the war, as it is told through the eyes of the twelve-year old Lily Tregenze, whose family was forced to leave their village to make way for the army exercises. Through Lily's diary entries the reader gets to know what it was like to live in wartime Britain, which, I believe, makes this book perfect for introducing young readers to the concept of war, death and loss, but also true friendship and love. The only thing I didn't particularly liked though was that unexpected and quite surprising twist at the end -- well, I kind of suspected something like that would happen, but still I had mixed feelings about it. On the one hand, I was insanely happy for Lily (even sobbed a little), but on the other hand, I felt really sorry for Boowie's grandfather -- he surely did not deserve that... But on the whole, it was a very enjoyable and entertaining little book and I would recommend it to anyone, children and adults alike. I wish I had read it when I was around Lily's age.

Read information about the author

Ebook The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips read Online! Michael Morpurgo is the author of many books for children, five of which have been made into films. He also writes his own screenplays and libretti for opera. Born in St Albans, Hertfordshire, in 1943, he was evacuated to Cumberland during the last years of the Second World War, then returned to London, moving later to Essex. After a brief and unsuccessful spell in the army, he took up teaching and started to write. He left teaching after ten years in order to set up 'Farms for City Children' with his wife. They have three farms in Devon, Wales and Gloucestershire, open to inner city school children who come to stay and work with the animals. In 1999 this work was publicly recognised when he and his wife were awarded an MBE for services to youth. He is also a father and grandfather, so children have always played a large part in his life. Every year he and his family spend time in the Scilly Isles, the setting for three of his books.
