This little town welcomed him with open arms so much - that they got so much joy in seeing him grow - that they saw how this little boy changed an old man, who had been grieving for his wife and child for forty years. As I mentioned, I read this book when I was ten and now twelve years later this book was still beautiful. Tom" Oakley is a sixty-year-old man who was widowed 40 years ago and became the town recluse/curmudgeon.

It always cheers me up when I hear about children being taken out of the classroom to a theatre or a museum or to some open spaces so I was delighted to hear about a museum that combines history, drama and story telling and intrigued and flattered to know that young people would also be able to enter the world of Goodnight Mister Tom there. He realises his mother had sex with a man, though she told him that it was a sin for unmarried men and women to consort.Tom tells the story of William Beech, a young boy evacuated to the country with thousands of other children at the start of World War II.

Perfect for gifting and sharing the classic story with loved ones, Puffin will publish GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM in clothbound hardback on 6 th May 2021. Ignored by the other children I was lonely, and I hated England so much that if we had to sing an English song in a singing lesson I would refuse and mime it instead. With World War II looming over their heads, the city of London makes a decision to evacuate the children to the countryside.She is best known for her first novel, Goodnight Mister Tom, which won the 1982 Guardian Prize for British children's books [1] and has been adapted several times for screen or stage. Michelle has written the book and lyrics for three more musicals and eight other novels, including award-winning Back Home and Just Henry, which won the Costa Award. Set during World War II, it features a boy abused at home in London who is evacuated to the country at the outbreak of the war.
