Nd World War A sad deprived child he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom. Such a beautiful beautiful book It was recommended to me by the librarian at my middle school who hosted a group called the Bookmunchers where nerdy ones like myself could eat their lunches in the library every Wednesday Even through the horrors facing people in WWII London we are shown the true love that can happen from makeshift families like that made up of Mr Tom and Willie It's a book that changed my life as a child It made me feel safe to know that even when we're at the worst places in our lives that there are still possibilities This is a heartbreaking gentle and terrifying eye opening tale where characters were surprised by their own ability to change

Good Night Mr TomOakley but his new found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in Lond. We had to read this in primary school and it's been one of my most read well loved books ever since It doesn't seem enough to say Oh it's a really touching story because it's so much than that Willie is a young boy who's been abused by his mother all his life so when he's evacuated to the countryside he's a uivering nervous wreck He expects to be beaten for everything he gets wrong The widower he stays with Tom Oakley is gruff and blunt and has shunned company ever since his wife died in childbirth forty years ago While they first seem utterly unsuited to each other each turns out to be exactly right for the otherThis is a story about how two people can change It never fails to make me laugh and cry and feel lighter after I put it downI disagree with other reviewers who've said it's not for children eg the abuse scenes are too shocking Since we read it in primary school our teacher obviously didn't have a problem with it There were no complaints from parents either That said it's accessible to all ages It's one of those books that grows up with you that you come back to again and again even when you're an adult The writing is so evocative of a wartime country village and the characters all feel real and fully developed It's a wonderful tale of friendship and growth that everyone can enjoy
