Memories of Childhood

£11.99

Product description

When they were first published more than a decade ago, both War Boy and After the War Was Over were met with huge acclaim, with War Boy winning Britain's prestigious Kate Greenaway Medal. Now for the first time, these two remarkable books are brought together in a limited-edition volume. In War Boy, Michael Foreman looks back on his own wartime childhood in an English coastal village and at life on the front line of battle. Written and illustrated with the same simplicity and gentle humour, After the War Was Over shows us that same village from 1945 onwards, when victory bonfires burned, and where bombsites were turned into playgrounds for the children of peacetime. Such a memorable picture of life in the 1940s and 1950s will have a poignancy for earlier generations while captivating and informing the imaginations of children today.

Used hardback book in dust cover. Number 812 of limited edition, signed by the author. As new.
