THE KID ON SLAPTON BEACH – don’t miss reading this book.
Fantastic read – based on a true story.
Absolutely brilliant – sensitively written from the child’s perspective but covering an amazing historical event – would suit any child from about 10 up and all adults. Very moving.
I couldn’t put this book down. It describes the monumental carnage that occurred on Slapton Sands in June 1944. I thoroughly recommend this as a holiday read.
A gripping story about the Second World War
