Suddenly there were no secrets anymore. Everyone knew there was going to be a war, which meant that all children in danger areas like London were to be sent to the country. Then on Friday 1st September 1939, it happened. As war was about to be declared, Laura, Andy and Tim Clark with their name and address pinned to them, joined the straggling procession of evacuees to the station. Operation Pied Piper was under way.
Noel Streatfeild vividly recreates the atmosphere of blitz-torn London with all its friendliness, horror, confusion and tragedy. Her book cannot fail to impress young readers. (Birmingham Post)
