Takes yer time everythin' 'as its own time So I have this theory that whenever I read a book where there is a gruff old man who is prickly on the outside but a big softie in the middle I will love itThis book is one of my all time favourites and I know I say that about every book but I definitely mean it this time I first read it when I was about ten and I was in Year 5 learning about WW2 and the Blitz and evacuees Seeing as I had read all the books we had to read and I was allowed to go into the library and choose my own book And this one was the first book I choseMs Magorian’s writing feels so comfortable to me; it’s simple and gentle but never ventures into twee ness twee dom fine it never becomes twee The setting is perfectly constructed the friendships that are developed are honest and true and there is always this rich sense of innocent fun running through the story which is perfectly balanced with the harrowing points of the tale But I’m not talking about them because it just makes me too sad And let’s not forget Sam who is the most endearing fictional dog since Manchee As I mentioned I read this book when I was ten and now twelve years later this book was still beautiful It has aged extremely well I still laughed seriously Zach and I need to be best friends and I still got teary at certain parts and I still got a warm feeling in my tummy at that epilogueYesThat’s right An epilogue that made me feel warm and fuzzyThis is book is truly special to me Also I just want to say something about the film adaptationGaspI know I know This is a book site Only heathens talk about film on this siteBut whatever I don’t careNormally I hate watching adaptations of my favourite books because they never ever EVER measure up And I think this is the only exceptionI think I’ve seen this film at least ten times five of those viewings were on successive video days on the afternoon of every end of term The Railway Children in the morning of courseOh and whoever cast John Thaw as Mr Tom is a champion And ALSO why haven’t I gone and seen this play yet One day

Nd World War A sad deprived child he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom. When I read a book like this one I try to imagine what my eight or ten year old self would have thought of it I’m pretty sure she would have loved this and read it than once It is beautifully written very sweet and uplifting and inspires kindness and a view of the world as a place that will rescue you William Beech is an evacuee from London during WWII and Tom Oakley is the reclusive elderly man who has the boy foisted upon him Will is a child who has been abused and bullied and his fear is evident almost immediately to Mr Tom who is a very kind man at heart The reader witnesses the growing relationship that saves these two people who don’t always fit with the rest of the world as they face both everyday life and some traumatic experiences together I believe this would make an excellent book to read with a young person They would learn a lot about life during WWII you could talk about what it takes to make a family how to overcome the difficulties life throws at you and both of you could enjoy a good story and a fun read

Good Night Mr TomOakley but his new found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in Lond. BEWARE SPOILERS AHEADI really hated this book I mean really hated Willie Beech is a complete Mary Sue except for the fact he's a 9 year old boyHe is way too perfect He is amazing at everything he attempts despite his situation writing maths acting socialising art It's just too unbelievable His friends are incredibly boring George and Ginny had no personality Carrie was simply a token feminist and Zach was the only one who was written semi decently but he was just so irritating I didn't shed a tear when he died Willie didn't react realistically to his abuse at all I felt The child was physically mentally and emotionally abused He was locked up with his dying sister for ages When rescued he was emotionally traumatised in hospital so far believable What really bothered me was the hospital scene The nurses were putting Willie to sleep in an attempt to not bother the other children and overcome his trauma Tom who wasn't his legal guardian by the way or a psychologist insisted all he needed was fresh country air I'm not an expert myself but I can assume fresh air is not the appropriate care for a child abused so much Tom also insisted on bringing a dog into the hospital A dog Into a hospital With sick patients Never mind the germs Tom wants his dog It really annoyed meAfter his hospital stay Willie made a miraculous recovery Within weeks he was perfectly cured Unrealistic considering the immense abuse he suffered When he discovered his mother killed herself all he can think is why someone would kill themselves He had so much to live for therefore everyone did That is really the last he thinks of his mother and sister for that matter I felt Zach's death was really just for the sake of it It was almost as if there was nothing else to do for the end if the novel A death in a book especially that of a child should be necessary and unavoidable His just seemed like a filler Overall a really terrible book I wouldn't recommend it to anyone unless as a guide for how not to write a novel
