  • Goodnight Mister Tom

  • A beautiful jacketed hardback with a lovely new introduction and extra material by the author to celebrate the 40th anniversary of bestselling GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM.

    Young Willie Beech is evacuated to the countryside as Britain stands on the brink of the Second World War. A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom Oakley - but his new-found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in London.

    'Everyone's idea of a smash-hit first novel: full-blown characters to love and hate, moments of grief and joy, and a marvellous story that knows just how to grab the emotions' - Guardian

Michelle Magorian's first ambition was to be an actress and, after three years' study at the Bruford College of Speech and Drama, she went to mime school in Paris. All this time she had been secretly scribbling stories, and in her mid-twenties he became interested in children's books and decided to write one herself. The result was GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM - a winner of the Guardian Award and the International Reading Association Award and was also made into a much-loved film starring the late John Thaw. Since then she has published several novels, including award-wining BACK HOME and JUST HENRY (Egmont), which won the Costa Book Award in 2008. She has also published poetry and short-story collections and picture books for young children.
