Product description

Like Goodnight Mister Tom? Try this. Struggles, friendships and an ancient curse: being evacuated can be hard. Hitler’s bombs are falling on London when Carrie and Nick are sent away. Wartime evacuees billeted in Wales, they stay with bullying old Mr Evans and his timid mouse of a sister. Their friend Albert is luckier, living in Druid’s Bottom with Hepzibah Green and the strange Mr Johnny. But the old house is tainted by the Screaming Skull’s ancient curse. When Carrie does a terrible thing, will it haunt them forever?
