Rated 5 out of 5 by from Get ready for a good cry! This book is just so great! But be warned you'll have to have a strong consistency - or you'll be blubbering like a baby by the end!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Favourite Children's Book! I believe Goodnight, Mr Tom is an underrated children's novel - it really should be right up there in the classics, with The Secret Garden, and the contemporary classics, such as the Harry Potter books. A truly great piece of historical fiction, it is a moving, coming-of-age story that I have read and re-read numerous times.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great way to introduce the effects of war on people I read this when I was around 12 years old. It's a very moving story about a boy who had been abused by his mother and didn't really know what family and friendship is like until he has been evacuated and moved to live in the countryside. While the main character benefits from the evacuation, there are other children who go through other things like homesickness and being used as labourers to earn their keep. Because the setting is WWII, children learn about things like bomb shelter, air raids, etc. All in all, the story is moving and at the same time educational. I think it's a must read for tweens.
