Goodnight Mr Tom by the English author Michelle Magorian is a popular story when learning about WWII. With World War II looming over their heads, the city of London makes a decision to evacuate the children to the countryside.

Set during World War II, it features a boy abused at home in London who is evacuated to the country at the outbreak of the war. After Geoffrey shares a photo of his own best friend, who is also dead, William begins to come to terms with Zach's death. Furious to hear about his association with the Jewish Zach and to see William speak for himself, she accuses him of blasphemy and knocks him unconscious. A Little Love Song ( Not a Swan in the US), her third novel, features a young woman becoming independent and finding first love in wartime Britain.

Although he has never travelled far, he takes the train into London and eventually finds Deptford and William's home. While they first seem utterly unsuited to each other, each turns out to be exactly right for the other. Children could then go on to investigate conductive materials using makey makey kits or BBC Microbits.

To celebrate the 40 th anniversary of GOODNIGHT MISTER TOM, the classic story is publishing in a stunning clothbound hardback edition on 6 th May 2021. In case you haven’t read the title of this post, the book in question is Michelle Magorian’s 1982 masterpiece Good Night, Mr.

It’s this back-and-forth that makes for a fast-paced story that doesn’t pull any punches in delivering an impassioned, tragic, and dramatic story. Using actor educators these sessions bring the story to life immersing the children inside the world of the 1940s and can be used both as an introduction to 1940s life and an inspiration for creative writing, based upon the story of Goodnight Mr Tom. Goodnight Mister Tom by Michelle Magorian is the unforgettable story of young Willie Beech, evacuated to the country as Britain stands on the brink of the Second World War. Really enjoyed following William's story of a war evacuee child and being placed with Mr Tom in little Weirwold. Thankfully, Magorian gives her readers sufficient mental breaks by balancing tense, emotionally exhaustive scenes with lighthearted moments shared between friends and family.

After she had finished the book, she joined a novel-writing class at City Lit, at which she shared the book.
