In the attic of his house Sam finds a leather case that belonged to his great great grandfather, Freddy Ovel. The case contains a diary, and as Sam begins to read it he is taken right back to just before the First World War when Freddy was a boy. Sam also finds a photograph and discovers that at his age, Freddy was his exact double. But the diary unlocks much more than just the events of the war. Sam discovers that there is much more to 'Freddy' than meets the eye - not only heroic wartime deeds and terrible injuries, but also some very dark secrets. Thought-provoking and poignant, this book is an excellent way to teach children more about history and the first great war of our times. As part of the Cold Fusion series, this stimulating read is for the curious child that wants something a little more demanding than the usual range of books on offer for their age group.

In the attic of his house, Sam finds a leather case that belonged to his great great grandfather, Freddy Ovel. The case contains a diary, and as Sam begins to read it he is taken right back to just before the First World War, when Freddy was a boy. Sam also finds a photograph and discovers that at his age Freddy was his exact double. The diary unlocks more than just events of the war however. Sam discovers there is much more to 'Freddy' than meets the eye - not only heroic wartime deeds and terrible injuries, but also some very dark secrets indeed. This poignant story, spanning a century, is the perfect way to remember the outbreak of the first great war of our time. The Secret Message is part of a new series from Ransom, called Cold Fusion, designed to cater for the interests of the more able reader. This series tackles compelling topics in a way that is more demanding than the average book for an 8 to 12 year old. The books in this series are not necessarily very long reads; rather it is the content of these books and the vocabulary that is used that is more challenging. Perfect for gifted and talented children.
