From the Publisher:
Fascinated by the air raids during World War II, three English children gradually become aware of true fear and horror when they seek vengeance on an opposing gang that destroyed their hideaway.
Derek and his friends, living outside of London during World War II, regard the frequent air raids with more fascination than fear--after all, they can barely remember a time without them. The boys are thrilled when school is canceled for a few days due to a raid, giving them time to work on their secret camp. But when their camp is savagely attacked by a rival gang from the neighborhood, the harsh reality of the violence surrouding them suddenly crashes down upon Derek and his friends--and a long night of bombing changes his feelings about the war forever.
Includes a reader's guide.
Susan Cooper was raised during the chaos and horror of World War II. When she was 27, she married American widower Nicholas Grant and moved from England to the United States to live with him and his three children. Cooper has remained in the U.S., where she writes her books, many of which are based on English and Welsh myths. In 1976 she won the Newbery Medal for THE GREY KING, part of her Dark Is Rising series based on the legend of King Arthur. In addition to these young adult works, Cooper also works as a journalist and a playwright. She is admired for her picture books, including THE SILVER COW: A WELSH TALE and THE SELKIE GIRL.
