From the author of bestselling The Tent, The Bucket and Me, now a BBC1 comedy series, THE KENNEDYS. As the youngest in a family of six, all eleven-year-old Anthony wants is a pair of shoes to call his own.
Instead he's condemned to wear a pair of hand-me-down wellies that may or may not be haunted. When war comes to his small, impoverished mining village, life starts to get more exciting: there are American soldiers, his sister has joined the WAAF - Mrs Reece even has a banana!
But it is only when a foreign plane crashes into the Welsh hillside that Anthony and his gang discover what war is really about...
