War boy

£10.99

A special new edition of Michael Foreman’s award-winning memoirs about his wartime childhood.

‘I woke up when the bomb came through the roof. It came through at an angle, overflew my bed by inches, bounced up over my mother’s bed, hit the mirror, dropped into the grate and exploded up the chimney.’

War Boy is a modern classic about a young boy growing up during World War II. Life during wartime is vividly brought to life in this personal story filled with childhood memories – from hiding in air-raid shelters to playing in bombed-out ruins.

Michael Foreman’s numerous books for children have earned him widespread recognition as one of the world’s leading illustrators. He has regularly collaborated with Terry Jones, Michael Morpurgo and others while several of his own books are also considered modern classics.
