The Children of the King
Love war stories? Here’s one with a difference. A tale of the Second World War. Of a castle. Of five children… and a past and present that collide. As the Blitz bombs hit, wartime London has become a dangerous place to live. So the Lockwood children are whisked away to Heron Hall in the country, to stay with their Uncle Peregrine. But when Cecily and Jeremy find two mysterious boys hiding in the ruins of a nearby castle, a haunting time-slip adventure begins. Could they really be the sons of a medieval king? Goodnight Mister Tom mixed with Merlin. Magical writing by a true great.
