Product description

A hauntingly beautiful wartime story with a ghostly twist – this is set to become a modern classic.

It’s the Second World War and, with London becoming an increasingly dangerous place to live, the Lockwood children are whisked away to the Heron Hall, to stay with their Uncle Peregrine in the countryside. But when they discover two strange boys hiding in a nearby derelict castle, the past and present collide. Those in the present will need to learn from the troubles of the past.

    Children of the King is a book set in the war. It tells you about these two kids and a mom who have been sent as evacuees from London by their dad. Cecily, Jeremy and their mom, Heloise, have been sent to live in Heron Hall. Do they get on okay? Or do they live there forever?

    I think that this book is good because it has an effect of mystery and you want to keep turning the pages, I also like this book because the characters are like ones that you would met in a normall day which means you can really relate to them.

    This book is probaly for ages 12-13.
