Waterstones Says

A stone-cold classic of children’s literature, the powerful story of deprived evacuee William Beech and his slow-burning friendship with the cantankerous Tom Oakley is written with incredible light and shade. 

Winner of the Guardian Children's Fiction Award

The story of young Willie Beech, evacuated to the country as Britain 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 in London.

As time goes by Tom begins to worry when Willie doesn't answer his letters, so he goes to London to find him, and there makes a terrible discovery.

“Goodnight Mister Tom”

I enjoyed this book, it was very well written. While quite sad at times, the thoughts of William add some humour.
