Susan Cooper always writes well This is one of her deceptively simple books On the face of it the story is an uncomplicated children s story but it is as the title suggests about learning what fear really is For Derek and his friends Peter and Geoffrey think the war is as Derek s father said of their attitude Just a great game They continue to build their den go to school fight off the neighbouring street s children who destroy their den and wonder for there are undercurrents they sense the grown ups know about Even the nightly air raids are adventures not seriously scary Over the nine busy days of the story Derek changes from the boy who thinks war is exciting who collects shrapnel and enjoys watching the dog fights to one who understands war as destruction and death Susan Cooper s skills turn this difficult subject into one any child can understand It is also a book which would give a youngster an understanding of what it was like during WWII seen through the eyes of Derek someone their age and a likeable character Whilst I ve made the novel sound like a history text which it could be used for in fact it is a cracking good read as are all Susan Cooper s books
