Review – Time Train to the Blitz by Sophie McKenzie

Bookbabbler Kirsten offered to read and review a book for us, and here it is:

Time Train to the Blitz by Sophie McKenzie

It all starts when a mysterious train appears in the park. Before they know what’s happening, Joe and Scarlett are whisked away on a journey back in time. Magically transported to World War II they’re given a mission: to save a young boy’s life. But with bombs falling on London they find they are counting down to disaster…

This is an exciting story about two children and a dog who go back in time to the second world war (The Blitz) and there they meet a boy and they save his life. My favourite character would have to be the dog Pippy because when the boy is stuck in the garden with a very big dog (Big Rex) the little dog pippy distracts Big Rex so the boy can escape.

The story is exciting with a lot going on at once – I couldn’t put it down and read it all in one go!  I would recommend it to anyone from the age 7 to 10. It was one of the best books I have ever read and would give the book a rating of 4/5.

Thank you Kirsten and thanks to Usborne Children’s Books for sending us a review copy. It’s now been added to our shop, too.
