Children Ages 8+ • 3.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2007

What was it like being a small-town kid during WWII? In episodic chapters, Peck answers this through the eyes of Davy, whose brother is in the Air Force. Rich in the details of ration books, air-raid drills, scrap metal collection, and the constant fear of a telegram? this book has the feel of sitting on a back porch listening to a good family yarn. Lincoln Hoppe reads in a warm, inviting voice at a leisurely pace that is mostly just right, although there are moments when the pace seems sluggish. He does an especially fine job capturing the poignancy of the evolving father-son relationship. Light in tone, this story has unexpectedly deep currents.
