The Amazing Story of Adolphus Tips

KEEP OUT! DANGER! It’s 1943. Battles are raging across Europe. Now the shadow of war has come to Lily’s seaside village in Devon. One day, all the people are told to leave their homes – no exceptions, no arguments. Soon the whole area is blockaded by razor wire and keep-out signs. What’s going on? Well, behind the barbed wire is a top-secret zone where Allied forces are training for D-Day. But no one tells Lily’s cat, Adolphus Tips, where he can and can’t go. When Adolphus heads into the danger zone with Lily in pursuit, what they find behind the barbed wire will change their lives forever…
