The Children Who Stayed Behind Paperback



It's the Second World War and an attack from the Germans on the English coast is expected any day now.

Rolls of barbed wire line the beaches - Brighton is braced for war.

When all the residents of the city are told they must evacuate, the Hartford family heads to the station, but in the panic of the moment, the three children are left behind.

The city seems utterly deserted, but when the pier mysteriously lights up, they realise they are not as alone as they first thought...Vintage Children's Classics is a twenty-first century classics list aimed at 8-12 year olds and the adults in their lives.

Discover timeless favourites from Peter Pan and Alice's Adventures in Wonderland to modern classics such as The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
