A dramatic and touching illustrated World War Two play, perfect for schools, written by the bestselling creator of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson.

Perfect for schools - both for class reading as well as performance.

A short black and white illustrated play set in World War Two written by Julia Donaldson, author of the modern classic The Gruffalo.

World War Two has been declared and the Chivers children are sent to the safety of the countryside. They are delighted to be brought back home when it looks like the Germans aren't going to invade after all. But the air-raid siren goes off and this time it's frighteningly real.

This dramatic and touching play brings Manchester during the Second World War and its people to life, and provides a variety of opportunities for school classes to explore both historical and literacy topics in an involving and creative setting. Also includes helpful tips on staging and costume.

'This touching play brings to life the Second World War in a very accessible way for junior children' - Books for Keeps
