“Phil Earle’s writing is wise and kind, utterly believable, both hilariously funny and heartbreakingly sad in the turn of a page.” LibraryLady
“Earle serves up ladles of jeopardy while interrogating pet love, the causes of bullying and childhood friendship. Another triumph.” The Times
“Phil Earle has done it again, firmly cementing his place as one of the foremost authors of historical fiction for children.” Scope for Imagination
The new novel from the author of When The Sky Falls, also an ACHUKA Book of the Day a year ago.
September 1939. The world is on the brink of war. As his dad marches off to fight, Noah makes him a promise, to keep their beloved family dog safe. When the government advises people to have their pets put down in readiness for the chaos of war, hundreds of thousands of people do as they are told. But not Noah. He’s not that sort of boy. With his two friends in tow, he goes on the run, to save his dog and as many animals as he can. No matter what.
