You are a 10-year-old girl living in London with your family in 1938. When the German air force begins dropping bombs on the city, the government decides to evacuate you and thousands of other children to the English countryside. An uncertain life of rural hardship, bullying and loneliness awaits you.
"You Wouldn't Want To Be" is a constantly-growing library of exciting titles which transport the reader to the grisliest times and places in history. The first-person narrative approach puts the reader in the shoes of some of the most unfortunate people ever to have lived. Humorous cartoon-style illustrations bring the characters to life, while informative captions explain processes or chronological events.
