Goodnight Mister Tom
When the Second World War thrusts scrawny evacuee Willie Beech into the care of a gruff old man, an unlikely bond flourishes between them. But as Willie enjoys his first ever taste of human kindness, suddenly his happiness comes under threat again… Michelle Magorian’s heartwarming classic tells a memorable tale of friendship against all the odds, set against a stunning wartime backdrop.
