Goodnight Mister Tom – MIchelle Magorian

goodnight mister tom

I absolutely love this book! Through this book I learned about the evacuation during the war. I also reached a milestone with this book by reading the thickest book with the most pages by then: 435 pages altogether!

Back cover:

Young Willie Beech is evacuated to the country as Britian stands on the brink of the Second World War. A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom Oakley – but his new-found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back to London.


5/5 Looks like all the best books takes place in some sort of war. Dear Mr Tom – every child growing up needs a person like you!

Published: 1981
