Product description

A tender and beautifully evoked story which sweeps readers back into the Second World War era. When the war thrusts scrawny evacuee Willie Beech into the care of a gruff old man, an unlikely bond flourishes between them. But as Willie enjoys his first ever taste of kindness, suddenly his happiness is under threat again… This heartwarming classic sets universal human themes against a stunning and memorable wartime backdrop.

”... a marvellous story that knows just how to grab the emotions.” Guardian

    Reading Goodnight Mister Tom was very emotional also seeing the film drew me more closer to the feeling which the author must of put into the book I loved it and the description is magnificent really helpful for English.

    I think this book is very emotional and you can very easily feel empathetic towards the young boy in the story who has been evacuated to the country. It seems he hasn’t had a very nice life so far with his mother and when he returns home, it doesn’t get any better. Overall i think Goodnight Mister Tom is a very heartwarming and emotional story that will leave you in tears.
