While the two English children andthe teenage German pilot are confined together, with the bombs falling around them, Tom and Iris listen to Martin's story...Themes: moral issues around war; propagandaTeaching points: rich language and description make it ideal for sentence level work; has great appeal for both girls and boys and would link to war poetry
