This week we’re publishing Anna At War, a brilliant and moving wartime adventure from Helen Peters – the highly-acclaimed author of Evie’s Ghost.
And we’re thrilled that Anna At War has just been named the Independent Booksellers’ Children’s Book of the Month!
The Independent Booksellers’ Children’s Book of the Month is chosen by a panel of independent booksellers, co-ordinated by The BA Children’s Bookselling Group. The Children’s Book of the Month has been running since 2018 and aims to showcase independent bookshops’ power and unique expertise to drive sales of children’s books.
Emma Bradshaw, Head of Campaigns at the BA, commented: “Anna at War is a brilliantly moving story, and I fell in love with the brave Anna. We are so pleased that the panel has selected this exciting, beautifully written book for Children’s Book of the Month.”
As life for German Jews becomes increasingly perilous, Anna’s parents put her on a train leaving for England. But the war follows her to Kent, and soon Anna finds herself caught up in a web of betrayal and secrecy. How can she prove whose side she’s on when she can’t tell anyone the truth? But actions speak louder than words, and Anna has a dangerous plan…
