    PDF Hilary McKay ¸ ¸ The Skylarks’ War PDF EPUB ë The Skylarks’ skylarks’ download, The Skylarks’ free, The Skylarks’ War ePUBWhat an amazing and moving story My wife read it first and couldn’t put it down She kindly passed it on to me and I read it in a day I am a history teacher and often have issues with books set in the World Wars as the writers tend to make obvious errors but this was beautifully written and I felt captured the mood of the war years I was moved almost to tears in places It reminded me of so many amazing books like; War Horse the Railway Children and maybe Swallows and s With All uiet on the Western Front in there too For a children’s novel it was uite brutally honest about how hard and dark the Western Front could beDare I say a modern classic? I am going to recommend this for the school library and my students What a lovely story
