About the Author:

Robert Westall was born October 1929, in Tynemouth, England. His first book, The Machine Gunners, was published in 1975, for which he won the Carnegie Medal. Amongst many more prizes and accolades, he won the Carnegie for the second time in 1980, with The Scarecrows. He died in 1993.

From AudioFile:

It's WWII England, and young Harry's parents and sister are killed in a bombing. Harry meets great kindness and cruelty as he fights for survival for himself and his newly acquired dog. Whately presents each of a diverse lot of characters very realistically. He also does the sound effects to recreate the bombings. Whately's delivery gives the listener a clear picture of this effecting story. An excellent purchase for young audiences; however, others especially WWII buffs would also enjoy this presentation.
