Reviews

Unusually small typeface doesn't detract from this companion to War Boy (1990) and War Game (1994), about the return to relative innocence that marked the immediate post-WW II years. In shining prose, Foreman limns the wonders of peace time: his first visit to a beach, the end of rationing, the Big Band sounds coming over the radio. The illustrations, watercolors punctuated by black-and-white drawings and full-color reproductions of advertisements and posters, convey the poignancy of the times: In the stooped posture of two Estonian schoolboys is all the fear an outsider ever felt. Evocative and memorable. (Kirkus Reviews)
