Summary

Emmie let out a huge sob. “It’s not a film set,” she cried. She held on to Jack for a moment, then took a step back, closed her eyes, and shouted, “WHERE AM I?”

When Jack and Emmie suddenly find themselves transported back to London in 1940, they find a world both familiar, yet very different. As they dodge falling bombs and overzealous policemen, they befriend Jan, a lonely Polish refugee. Together, they must work out if the shadowy figure they keep seeing is a spy and unlock the secret of getting home again....

This educational story helps to weave current views and historical events together in an exciting adventure that would appeal to both boys and girls.

Bus to 1940s London

Catch the bus and travel back in time to London in world war 2
This book is aimed at the younger reader maybe 8 plus and will be a good introduction into the history of the period and there is plenty of action and adventure along the way
The narration is excellent and I thank the author for a free copy of this book for an honest review
I will be introducing the grandchildren to this book when they are a little older

Awesome!

Awesome little book! What a time and place to travel back to. It's definitely something that I would give my kids to read or even something I could see kids reading this in school. But A book that the kids would actually enjoy reading. It really gets you thinking not only about the huge time jump and how things have changed just in that alone. But there is also a war going on? Totally crazy. Especially with what's going on in the world today...who knows what tomorrow brings. But still, the book was fun, an easy read, and held my attention throughout. I also listened to the audible version... the narrator did an excellent job. He was perfect for that part!
