Product description

It is 1944 and Florence is occupied by Nazi German forces. The Italian resistance movement has not given up hope, though – and neither have Paolo and his sister, Constanza. Both are desperate to fight the occupation. But what can two siblings do against a whole army with only a bicycle to help them? Well, in extraordinary circumstances, people are capable of extraordinary things… A gripping and moving novel of war and courage by one of the world’s best-loved writers for children.

“Shirley Hughes is one of the all time greats.” Today
