Britain is at war with Germany.
Mum's worried about Derek in the army; Dad's worried about building the Andersen shelter; Elaine's worried about not having a pair of stockings to wear; Jenny's worried about all the animals that will get hurt. But Bobbie, aged nine, is more excited than he has ever been before!
Fighter planes, bombers, sirens, gas masks, spies, sleeping in the air-raid shelter - it's all a glorious game to Bobbie. And with Big Tom to cuddle, he'll never be frightened . . .
This is a longer satisfying story ideal for confident young readers.
