Read full description of the books:
It is difficult to find a children's book, that is illustrated tastefully, about a family in war time, but this book achieves this task effortlessly. There are moments where you might think the content is a bit strong for younger children, but if you think about it in terms of global consciousness and awareness of others plight, I think that this book does a fabulous job of cultivating empathy and has a simple enough story and emotions that a child can relate to it. Nothing is graphic, or violent, but it is a bit of a tear jerker, and being that it is based on a true story, only adds to it's credibility and respectability, for me anyway. The illustrations are gorgeous, painterly and many could stand alone as works of art.

Read information about the authorAlso known as Evelyn Bolton and A.E. Bunting.
Anne Evelyn Bunting, better known as Eve Bunting, is an author with more than 250 books. Her books are diverse in age groups, from picture books to chapter books, and topic, ranging from Thanksgiving to riots in Los Angeles. Eve Bunting has won several awards for her works.
Bunting went to school in Ireland and grew up with storytelling. In Ireland, “There used to be Shanachies… the shanachie was a storyteller who went from house to house telling his tales of ghosts and fairies, of old Irish heroes and battles still to be won. Maybe I’m a bit of a Shanchie myself, telling stories to anyone who will listen.” This storytelling began as an inspiration for Bunting and continues with her work.
In 1958, Bunting moved to the United States with her husband and three children. A few years later, Bunting enrolled in a community college writing course. She felt the desire to write about her heritage. Bunting has taught writing classes at UCLA. She now lives in Pasadena, California.
